I created this piece many years ago. It speaks of the power of beauty flourishing in the hard, broken and unexpected places. • May it continue to be so even as I say farewell to this particular work.

“I ask for no other light to live by than the light of the Magi’s star. It isn’t a light to carry us away from our everyday lives. It is a light by which we see them truly. By the light of the star, I can see even this place with new eyes. This is no ordinary house. This is no pile of bricks and mortar. This is an outpost of the kingdom of heaven, and a star has risen overhead.” @christiepurifoy Roots & Sky • Epiphany • Grace & Peace
2 cents on 2020 + + the sharp turns, cliffhangers, surprises, highs, sudden drop-offs, pain, detours and lots of terminology I’d like to see removed from the global population have not stopped the good and the true from remaining present in our days. Grateful.

the quiet early hours of Christmas Eve...the calm, the still, the hush of my house; gratefulness for provision in the midst of the week’s circumstances. • “winter scene” on the way to see my neighbor yesterday. A quick jaunt across the road, a few minutes to see and know. 💫
“...Christmas doesn’t come from a store.” -the Grinch • retail reflections
posted this on my personal page but I’ll say it again...For me, it’s truly the little things that create the most magic at Christmas. • My grandmother’s broach sparking on my kitchen wall and reflected across the room in my other grandmother’s etched glass starburst mirror.
God with us • the ultimate picture of humility • two of my favorite works — framed metallic prints of a structural piece I created for Advent a couple of years ago and a new linocut inspired by Isaiah 11:1. Both are available to you and yours this Advent. • Grace & Peace
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light • all the more poignant in this pandemic advent (photo from our European-years archive)
after a dreary start to the week, the night sky cleared, winter temps descended and it’s a green light for the festive.
nope. not quite there yet. Tomorrow. Yes. • I see you last day of November.

I am drawn to the small things, the soulful things. This is the place I create from and many of these works are now available to you. • There’s no rush or hustle here. Enjoy the simple and beauty of the present tense. Thank you to those who speak life and encourage. You are my gifts. • #thankyou #gifts #linkinbio
xx • keep it simple.
how are you keeping?
traveled back to Prague this morning...simply by noticing the Light.
and to the ones who are the essential support system, thank YOU.
the loveliest gift from one of my lovely daughters • beautiful and true. I treasure the work of your heart and hands.
wednesday well spent
