I remember lying in the hammock, with my journal in hand, sketching the tree in 2014.
It’s dark outside as I create this post and return to thinking about the tree. I trust that ki’s still there, just outside my window, a faithful witness to my morning devotion and guide for my contemplation.
If you haven’t yet followed the link above, you may be wondering about the word, “ki.” I have always struggled with referring to a body in nature as “it” and I am grateful to Robin Wall Kimmerer for presenting this beautiful alternative. Her explanation is in the short article found at the link.
“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.
