George’s Postcard Note: I couldn’t escape the intricacies of its forms; I was transfixed by the details of its east facade. I sat on a bench in the cathedral park, overhearing others recite its history, the importance of one entry over the other, the meaning of this gargoyle and that. One is lucky indeed to receive history lessons from passing tours while sitting and and delighting in the ancient forms of Chartes!
