|Modomnoc on his way to the boat that will carry him home to Ireland|
The magazine arrived in our mailbox yesterday. Considering that the format I planned on is a book with 8.5" x 10" pages, and the Chronicle pages are 5.5" x 8.5", the words and pictures came out quite well.
This is the story of St. Modomnoc, a 7th century Irish lad who goes to Wales to study for the priesthood, and is made beekeeper for the abbey. He makes such a deep and loving connection with the bees that when it is time for him to go back to Ireland, all the bees follow him there.
This image is of a specific place in Wales, a beach near Menevia Abbey where Modomnoc studied. It seems like the most likely place where Modomnoc's boat would have left from.
