First, I share a little humor from 2011, when JOY and NOEL had something else to say above my sister-in-law’s hearth.
To dip below the surface of what we know and immerse ourselves in the unknowable, to be lifted beyond the good-night moon and surrender ourselves to the realm of dreams, to be pierced by the infinite beauty of a blade of grass in a blanket of snow… all ways part the path home.
I’m chuckling now because as I typed the word “grass” above, my fingers went on autopilot and spelled “grace.” Yes, that’s grace.
“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.
