January 19

In response to the question posed in 2017’s image, to be “the continuous source of its own replenishment,” water has to change. To change is to be alive. Recently I created an Easter image. In the bottom left corner are the remains of a chrysalis with a swirl of movement going in and coming out.

I’m pausing/slowing down for now with the phrase, Continuous Source.

“Love for the earth and love for you are having such a long conversation in my heart.”
—Mary Oliver, from “Thirst”

Sacred alchemy
Leaning on and letting go
Love’s magic penny

Love holds the tension
in healing broken body,
stretching our limits.

“These are the days we must fall apart to become larger.” —Bayo Akomolafe, These Wilds Beyond Our Fences, p. 285

“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.
