Guest Artist – Thomas Merton

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.  The mind that responds to the intellectual and spiritual values that lie hidden in a poem, a painting, or a piece of music, discovers a spiritual vitality that lifts it above itself, takes it out of itself, and makes it present to itself on a level of being that it did not know it could ever achieve.

— Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island

A stand of birch trees

I remember the deep quiet of walking through the woods on a snowy gray afternoon, the birches confident they couldn’t be seen poking out between the snow falling and already fallen.

Liz’s art makes these memories come back alive for me. Liz, thank you for that gift.

Guest artist Elizabeth Daggar

I’ve been following Elizabeth’s blog since the beginning of October and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Here is something she wrote in a recent post that struck me.

Most folks are temporary. There’s a time during which you overlap. It ends.

The thing to always remember is that you’re permanent. Be permanent to yourself. A solid. And recognize those who exhibit permanent qualities in return— they’re your rocks. Will help get you to your True North. The Keepers.
