Why did the son need to return home? A typical answer in the U.S. is that he “squandered his money”; in Russia, “there was a severe famine”; in Tanzania, “no one gave him anything.” Fascinating.



notes from listening to the wisdom of a mother and daughter


“If I had to give the most simple definition of a Christian, this is it: simply one who is consciously drawing upon their Source.” ~Richard Rohr, The Divine Dance


“In the past, commonly held beliefs about a mechanistic, cause-and-effect universe supported oppressive and hierarchical social practices. Emerging views of a cosmos that is characterized by holism, indeterminacy, and interconnections have the potential to empower people from the two-thirds world in ways that liberation theology has not.” —Barbara A. Holmes, Race and the Cosmos, p. 23

“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.
