In seven years of frequently using the arc shape in my journaling, I’ve never really thought about why I do that. The photo from 2014 of me at the window of Luz Divina Lutheran Church in Márquez, Perú, is telling. I see it now.
A similar gift comes with the 2016 photo, in which Grunewald Guild Founder Liz Caemmerer and I are about to pass one another on the labyrinth journey. How grateful I remain for having lived in that posture for 4 1/2 years with Liz.
If the images are not full size, I do hope you’ll head over to the blog by clicking on the “September 29” above. When the images pair powerfully, I like to put them side by side.
And one more thing I can’t resist saying as I wrap up reflecting on this day’s gifts: Crayon, Pray on!
“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.
