“I must seek an unknowing / that is not a lack but / my only gain, taking me / beyond the press / of demands and desires / to an emptiness / where there is room for / You to be born / beyond all that I demand / to know and desire / to find, for You birth / Your Word in the space / of my silence and burn / as light in my dark.” —Meister Eckhart’s Book of the Heart by Jon M. Sweeney & Mark S. Burrows, p. 33
The beauty of the world is Christ’s tender smile for us, coming through matter. ~Simone Weil
“The Resurrection is not a one-time miracle that proved Jesus was God. Jesus’ death and resurrection name and reveal what is happening everywhere and all the time in God and in everything God creates. Reality is always moving toward resurrection.” ~from Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation
“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?
A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
