As another day dawns, I’m still pondering Mirabai’s invitation to “scoop the light into your eyes.”

I read with fascination this morning about the James Webb Space Telescope set to launch in December. Its mission is to scoop light that has been traveling for nearly the entire history of the universe.

“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.

A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
