At the gathering of Benedictine prioresses and subprioresses last week we shared some "latest news" from our monasteries. The items mentioned were positive and light and lively. But, I was very surprised to hear one prioress stand up and began, "Well, first of all, we are a PokemonGO site!" We all laughed and then 4-5 others chimed in that their monasteries were also PokemonGO sites. One even declaring that they are a Gym.
To the best of my knowledge we are not one, as we haven't seen a trail of smart phone users out front, pointing their phones our way to throw Poke Balls at us to catch a Pokemon character!
In that "go out and explore your world" vein, I decided to go out and share what I find around our world that I might otherwise ignore. So, in the PokemonGO spirit here is my version: "2-4-6," what can be found two, four and six miles east, west and south from our front entrance? I can't include north of course....there's just Lake Erie...north for 22 miles!
