October 3

Today’s images stirred in me the desire to light a candle. As I drew close, I watched the flame dance with the movement of my breath and sensed more intimately her warmth and fragrance.

My exhale, her heat.

Tread lightly, touch softly, Soul

Flame, become my home.







During Vespers at Holden Village a few nights ago, I watched a young artist delight in making and connecting dots in her journal. She was especially thrilled when she turned the page to find dots that had already bled through.
I believe I may have been given a glimpse of me.

“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.
