. . . Sharie!  Congratulations Sharie, you have won a space in the online class Eyes of the Heart: Photography as a Contemplative Practice (April 28-June 15, 2013) which starts Monday!

So many wondrous images over at the Flickr pool.  Pour a cup of tea and then linger for a while, maybe noticing if one image wants to choose you for some visio divina.

As always, a deep bow of gratitude to all of the monks and artists who gather here at the Abbey to celebrate the joys of creative expression.
