“At the heart of things is an eternal present
moment which is in each and every thing /
that is—and in me and in you, and when
we let ourselves come into an awareness of /
this Now we come to know ourselves as
a becoming new without renewal, and this /
is the truth beyond all our worries and needs
and hopes, this one eternal present moment.”

—Meister Eckhart’s Book of the Heart by Jon M.Sweeney and Mark S. Burrows, p. 49

just marks on a page,
one following another…
until I am found

“Love is the threshold where divine and human presence ebb and flow into each other.” —John O’Donohue

“She comes on wings of light.” —Mirabai Starr, Wild Mercy

Let us bless the light and love of this new day.


BREAKING-IN STORY from 2021… 🙂

Yesterday I shared the following image. It made me smile to see that the page’s other side had been shared two years ago. You might notice that the words accompanying 2018’s image (the one after this one) ponders ‘trust in the turning’ as well.

turning and tuning

shh… Shekinah is calling

so gentle her touch

“Little Pico thinks he’s writing this story for his life. But ideally he so forgets himself that he opens himself up to much larger things that have a mind and a way of their own. I think we’re much more scripted really than scripting.” ~Pico Iyer, Daily Good Post

“More scripted really than scripting…”

Have you ever walked a labyrinth? At the Grunewald Guild we have a triple Celtic spiral one that’s right next to the river. In the walking, it invites us to practice trust in the turning.

Notes from Pastor Emmanuel’s sermon at Living Word Lutheran Church, 5-11-14


“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.
