This is a digital collage of a pelican, some autumn leaves and colored glass.
“Birdsong brings relief to my longing. I am just as ecstatic as they are, but with nothing to say! Please, universal soul, practice some song, or something through me!”
– Rumi, “Birdsong”, translated by Coleman Barks
found a “nest” at the beach.
decided to digitally collage a lamb from a Christmas nativity scene
the lamb keeping vigil with Baby Jesus
as the center “pearl” reminded me of the Christ child
and our heart’s inner nest
of our vital breath
reminded me to watch what takes away from life
from the present moment
to notice the distractions that
take away from life’s goals
