how to be safe

Shrine to Traveling Legends
7 inches high x 7 inches wide

In fourteen hundred and ninety-two,
Columbus sailed the ocean blue . . .

And guiding him and the rest of us was that later-decanonized Saint Christopher, whose little image was sent to me by my friend Melissa, she of the other shrine and of legendary travels of her own.

The perfect non-saint to watch over me, the perfect non-believer.

I believe, deeply, in my non-beliefs. And St. Christopher, in the form of clouds and good wishes, looks down upon the roads we travel. He is a fearsome protector. This is a beautiful amulet. Thank you for it.
