There is a natural unfolding - a verdant revealing that occurs every spring. And no matter a person's origin, habitual proclivities, or state of being, one cannot help but bear witness to earth's abundant renewal.
In his poem simply entitled "Spring", Victorian poet Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote,
"Nothing is so beautiful as spring—
What is all this juice and all this joy?"
Thank you to Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church for creating a contemplative space for my newest series DAYSPRING. All of the abstract landscapes included in this exhibition celebrate the spiritual nourishment - all of the juice and joy - that comes from living in right-relationship with nature. Inhale the smell of wet earth and listen deeply for what Hopkins calls "A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning." Heaven is not in the hereafter. Heaven is HERE and NOW. Walk softly.
"Let Him easter in us, be a dayspring to the dimness of us, be a crimson-crested east." - Gerard Manley Hopkins
