I awake this morning aware that it is Sunday, the designated day of rest in Christian tradition - although the "rest" part, at least, is not so much in currency these days. Later today, I'm going to join my Arica... Continue reading

Fantastic! Thank you Elizabeth - I didn't know that, but it makes perfect sense. And how wonderful that you mention the Virgin Mary. Do you know the Renaissance painting of the Annunciation by Fra Angelico where there are three gold lines inscribed in the air between Mary and the Angel Gabriel, the Messenger who brings God's Word to impregnate her? I'd been imaging the scent of roses like those mysterious lines of Love that flow between Mary and God, but not really knowing how to convey that sense... thank you for giving me the link!

The first roses of the season are in full bloom... in my garden and all over the neighborhood; their scent a intoxicant I willingly abandon myself to. There is a particular blend of longing and joy that scent can evoke...... Continue reading

Thank you! I'm so glad this blessing resonated for so many of you... O'Donohue's work, particularly his book, "Beauty: The Invisible Embrace" has made a huge impact on me.

Thank you for writing, Matthew. I think you can see by the comments here (which are merely a tiny tip of the iceberg) that there are a great many of us who share these feelings, however poorly or well we express them. Ball used amazing skill and delicacy and tenderness to achieve what really great art can do - express the inexpressible. To me this is a deeply human capacity that art - both making it and appreciating it - serves, but there are other doorways into the ineffable... religion, spirituality, love, awe, nature. My heart is swelling as I write. Thanks again, Matthew, for writing.

I love your question, JJ... Sometimes I wonder if there is any one thing that "puts us on the path" of our life's learning, our soul's yearning... perhaps it's just that we come in with an opening, a sensitivity, that is triggered in response to beauty, or love, or pain (or whatever is a trigger for us) and sends us off, again and again, in the direction we need to go for the next part of our journey. Thanks so much for your lovely note.

My friend Bruce Taub just sent in this link to an article he'd read by a woman whose husband had just died in the NY Times' Opinionator blog recently. Thanks for the link, Bruce. It's not always easy to say good-bye to loved ones - whether you have two years, or two minutes to do so. The article reinforced for me the imperative to speak with each other about the really important things throughout our lives, and not put off those vital conversation to "some day", which all too often never comes.

Magical! And congratulations on your commission with Temple Reyim... May this be one of many many to come that will help show your work as widely as possible... it deserves to be seen and the world deserves to be blessed by seeing it.

I've been hearing about Death Cafés for a while. People gathering for conversations about death in each other's homes, or literally in cafes, starting out as strangers in many cases but quickly finding intimacy in the all-too-human stories that emerge... Continue reading
