January 7

There is much to ponder with this day’s seven years of images.

What I find myself most wanting to say out loud, though, is… “Happy Birthday, Liz.”




Come, Indwelling Light
Love revealed in ripples pulsed
Your lifelines of grace





“For healing to happen to both white and black, to address white supremacy, a new ethos is demanded. A quantum leap from keeping the other at bay to noticing we are already the ‘others,’ already entangled in palimpsests of trauma and possibility and co-becoming. New concepts disturb the rigidity of ‘identity’ and help us see how already entangled we are. How prolific, promiscuous, porous, and potent our becoming is. And how this can inspire a different ethos of responsivity.” —Bayo Akomolafe, These Wilds Beyond Our Fences, p. 166

“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.
