alive together

Can you believe a HUGE mushroom inspired this image?

I ran one afternoon during free time at the Theological Conference. At the end of the Chippewa Trail at the Green Lake Retreat Center, were tucked the hugest mushrooms I’ve ever seen, bigger than bowling balls. I shared the delight of their discovery during the centering reflection time with the pastors. That night a dream revealed what Pastor Sarah described as a “vulnerability hangover.” I might have just let it be, however, the first image I saw the next morning in my Instagram feed was a sketch of a mushroom. So, out of respect for the mushroom, I journaled an image and shared its story again.


still shining

I like to remember in the daylight hours that the stars are still shining above me.

Someone recently asked me if I ever went back and looked at my journal pages. I often go through looking at the pages of incidental ink, those poised for additional creative conversation. I don’t, however, look too long at the pages that have been completed.* So for the next couple weeks, I’m going to do just that and share some never-blogged-before images from my 2013 and 2014 journals.
