Michelle has left a comment under my previous post of her Litany for the Wounded with ways to help support the work she is doing, so please click here to go read! (scroll all the way down)She is doing such meaningful work and Michelle is a woman with a passion for justice and being present to those on the margins.
And once you have read that, go over to Story Midwife and read the incredible post Trish has written about creating an Altar of Attending for women who are dying. I drink in great writing about grief and dying like wine and I am so moved. Know that I keep vigil with you Trish.
I had a wonderful class again this morning, such an engaged group of students, it is energizing to teach them. Then a lovely afternoon of seeing my spiritual director, getting a massage, and taking a bath. So I am just savoring some stillness right now. The next few days I have an article to write for the UCLA Spirituality and Higher Education Newsletter, they are doing an upcoming issue on spirituality and artistic expression and I was asked to contribute and I am almost done with the draft of our lectio divina book. I am pushing a bit this week because next week I am taking a few days of retreat, but more on that later. . .
For now, I just offer another photo from yesterday’s pilgrimage:
Are there windows in your life that point you to the beauty of the world?
