Hello, and welcome to New Word Day here on One Day | One Image. Today’s new word is “chaplet.”

A Chaplet is a form of Christian prayer which uses prayer beads. Some chaplets have a strong Marian element, others focus more directly on Jesus or the Saints. Chaplets are “personal devotionals.” They have no set form and vary considerably. In the Roman Catholic Church, while the usual five-decade Dominican rosary is a chaplet, often chaplets have fewer beads than a traditional rosary and a different set of prayers. In the Anglican Communion, a chaplet often includes one week of the Anglican rosary. (from Wikipedia)

Additionally, the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy uses ordinary rosary beads of five decades. (also from Wikipedia)

And candles? Candles are involved too, right? (from my brain, which doesn’t understand any of this)

Tacos de Beef

Maybe it’s time for a lunch break? Go to San Antonio – it’s got a lot to choose from. For example, just in the width of a camera’s frame, you can get gorditas, tacos, fajitas, or tripas.

(NOTE: Autocorrect must have previously tasted tripas and is set on protecting my loyal follower(s) from them: it keeps trying to change it to “trips.” This is one time when I sort of support Autocorrect’s decision.)

Fall had arrived, which left the poolside chairs empty except for a few leaves.

Spikes of various kinds

My part of Texas does not have what one could consider to be a “lush” landscape. It is rather spiky, in fact, to the point that the plant forms influence the local art.

The Crossing

Sometimes when I need to get some images to fill up a certain blog, I’ll drive over to the industrial side of town, where there’s certain to be a train parked between some shabby buildings…
