This tiny chapel has a special meaning for MaryAnn and me. On one of our first dates we ended up here with a couple of votive candles we had just bought at K-Mart. We lit them for our young relationship and sat down in the shadows for a very long time. We are not religious, but this place, like El Santuario de Chimayo, transcends religion. It gives hope to the fragile. It comforts the weary. In this warm glow I believe we made that leap of faith that brought us so close together.
