“Spirit meets us in the commons of life.”

  2. land or resources belonging to or affecting the whole of a community

“I began to silence one half of the war within me, the duel between antiracism and assimilation… and started embracing the struggle toward a single consciousness of antiracism.” —Ibram X. Kendi, How To Be An Antiracist, p. 149

“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.
