It happens frequently at the Grunewald Guild that we have folks stop by who once were part of the Guild in some way. Often they have friends or family along who look at the place with puzzled curiosity. I’ve been wondering… what is it that calls people back? It seems bigger than nostalgia.
That’s what I was pondering and journaling when I realized that the page was an unusually close reflection of the breakfast table at which I was sitting, a lovely table set for Jim and me by a dear friend.
“The work is on the wall; the art is in the process.” ~Guild Co-Founder Rich Caemmerer
Just to note that my left brain knows there’s no apostrophe in “holds.” 🙂
“[T]he world’s working artists are not trying to help the world go around, but forward. Which is something altogether different from the ordinary.” ~Mary Oliver
Finisterre… a place of wild imagination!
This question caught my attention this morning: “What if one day our inner self and our physical self were turned inside out?” ~Narendra Kini
As the page was nearing completion, it dawned on me that the artist lives that question every day she’s about her work.
Artists: Paint bridges, not walls. Practice radical inclusivity.
~Jim Drees, Co-Director of the Grünewald Guild
How will I practice the simple art of being? ~Kayla McClurg
This week I am sharing journaling images that were part of last year’s Journaling through Advent experience, images that were created and never shared. I’m in the process of gathering another group this year. Might you be interested in joining me? Check it out here: http://www.grunewaldguild.com/upcoming/journaling-through-advent.
A dear friend’s blessing meets a recent post from Seth Godin in this image.
May we see the hand of God in everything. Here, I made this.
The same Spirit that hovered over the waters at the beginning of creation hovers over the mind of the artist at work. ~St. Thomas Aquinas
Sometimes Big Love comes in such seemingly small encounters.
I’ve begun an instagram account for Grunewald Guild called grunewald_graces. You can find it here: https://www.instagram.com/grunewald_graces/. It’s a gathering of little encounters with nature that grant glimpses of Big Love.
