“Bring in your scattered parts,” writes Howard Thurman, “…this is the time of togetherness.”
2013 – My son, Paul, and I participated in the Vacation Bible School of Luz Divina and Luz de Paraíso en Márquez, Perú. During our time in Peru we also visited Machu Piccchu. The rainy season was just beginning.
We also often learn how to serve from our mentors in life. One of my all-time faves would be my mom! Below is a photo of her, my daughter and me during a Mother-Daughter retreat at which I was speaking.
2020 – Here’s the haiku and what I wrote in 2020 about the photos below:
Last night’s offering,
more beginning, more seeing.
We all start somewhere.
I’ve included the photo inspiration. Often it’s helpful for me to see the images side by side. And I trust that in time I will mind the gap. That’s where the work is for 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.
