@desertwisdom - yes, Christ the Eternal Tao is an amazing book. I have not finished it, but so far it has been amazing.
Just finished eating at the Cafe Enchante across the street from the Joy of All Who Sorrow cathedral. Waiting for vespers to start - I am very grateful to be able to see St. John again!
I will be landing in San Francisco at 9:30 - so exciting!
