I got a very gracious email from Jan Richardson, whose book Night Visions I highly recommended here a couple of weeks ago as my all-time favorite Advent resource. She reported that she is now sold out and hopes to have it re-published by next year. But she also shared with me an Advent blog she has created: The Advent Door — even more of her wonderful art and words for me to savor. I'm looking forward to making a cup of tea and lingering there for a while.
So head on over for a visit, but before you do, make sure to visit this week's Poetry Party. I am as usual, very deeply moved by the beautiful and rich words shared here. It seems like every time I host one of these I am gifted with such insight into an area I am exploring through the mirrors you offer and the reflections you share through poetry. So again I say a deep thank you to everyone who participates. Your words are so very meaningful. Scroll down past the next post or click here to read the latest submissions and to submit your own wonderful poetic words.
