I LOVE LENT

I LOVE LENT

I LOVE LENT! This morning we went over to church just as the sun was rising, to join hundreds of others arriving to “get our ashes”.  Two refrains have continued to sing in my soul ever since.  “Remember where you’re from. You’re from–dust”, which opened out to remembering I’m from stardust, from the Divine outflow into creation, my Divine origin, who I am, why I’m […]

Circle the Cities With Love

Circle the Cities With Love

CIRCLE THE CITIES WITH LOVE Yesterday was a profoundly inspiring day for me. At the end of our Morning mass I found myself quite moved, tearing up even, as we joined hands and sang “We Shall Overcome.”  My bones carry a deep memory of our struggles of the ‘60’s. Early in the afternoon I was in a gathering of people who came and stood together […]

Autumn Path

Autumn Path

Looking out over the tree tops this morning I see these flaming colors in the foreground, with lots of tired greens beyond. This year the coming of Autumn feels like it has been long overdue.  I’ve been tired of the intensity of these recent months of conflict, chaos, suffering and disillusionment politically, nationally, globally.  There is a felt need to “just stop”,  to let go, […]

Gingko Gold

Gingko Gold

Shortly after waking, I slipped on my sandals, and walked out onto the land to greet the day.   Slowly and mindfully I prayed the prayer of the directions, facing each way—east, south, west, and north. I welcomed the gift of each direction with graceful tai chi gestures that seemed to evoke the prayer waiting in my heart.  Turning east again I reached high to welcome […]

From the Chaos

From the Chaos

FROM THE CHAOS,  August 23, 2016 As I touch my fingers to the keyboard this evening, this is what I want to share first with you;  many, if not most of my paintings come from within me—what I’m attending to in my soul or in the world as it comes into me, events and movements and how I see them affecting others besides myself. Painting […]

Spring is in the Air

As the signs of spring surround us and the smell of fresh flowers is in the air, we have some great news that we’ve done a little “spring” cleaning to Sr. Mary’s website.  We’re excited for you to see some of her new paintings and we’ve added some of her additional artwork from previous years.  While the update to the website was exciting we understand […]

Springtime of Creativity

Springtime of Creativity

Our Creative Universe! Some years ago I was out on the rocks at Eastern Point Retreat in Massachusetts. The sun had popped up from the Atlantic that bright Sunday morning and I lingered long at the edge of the world, listening, watching, waiting, and becoming aware of the living water’s caress of the ancient rocks which held me.  I imagined back 4 billion years ago […]

Here Comes the Possible

Here Comes the Possible

“The winter of our discontent…” These words might describe how I and so many Americans feel in this “dark time” of our political scene, our ecological reality, and the many kinds of oppressive power and violence that are creating a world of such suffering. In recent weeks while walking through the early morning woods I could just feel the sap rising in the trees around […]
