I am sure open to people enjoying whatever pursuits that bring joy into their lives. I’m even happier that I to can pursue the things that move me. Lets take music for example. There is something for everyone and somewhere deep in my soul I don’t believe one form is better than another. OK, I’m lying to a degree. Maybe I’m just so consumed by what moves me. That has changed through the years which I look at as a healthy form of growth!
I have long been fascinated with faces. Just think about it after you’re done chuckling! Aren’t they amazing? They tell such stories, such mysteries. As I’ve become older and I see my own face beginning to take the shape of its next stage, it makes me think of the time line. I look at pictures of people who have made the full circle here on earth, and now have begun the spiritual circles that will never end.
The ones that were physically shattered and damaged here and will forever be beautiful and healed. I see the hopes and dreams of young people before, as Jackson Browne so poetically wrote in “Too Many Angels”, “And upon their angel faces, life’s expectations climb, where the moment has preserved them from the ravages of time”. I also wonder how the photographs freeze us and perhaps in a way that was just one sliver of a moment but not the full moment. We then thread our dreams and thoughts into the photograph that is before us.
What does the term “Sacred Space” mean to you. It surely doesn’t have to be only one thing. There are sacred spaces in conversation and in prayer. Sacred Spaces are often in your mind and in your thought process.
