Bard Judith!  Judith, contact me to confirm your email address and you will be subscribed to my upcoming online retreat – Birthing the Holy: An Online Retreat for Advent with reflections by Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB and myself, and the wonderful art of Mary Southard, CSJ.

Thank you to everyone who participated.  Unfortunately I didn’t get to comment on everyone’s image this time, but I did savor each one.  I am so grateful for this creative community.  Make sure to stop by and savor the beautiful images shared here.

I am heading off to Ireland tomorrow for a week, so things will be a bit quieter at the Abbey while I am away.  Look for the next Poetry Party when I return!
