the art of listening


This blog is a little notebook of my wanderings as I learn to listen for knocks at the door.

I decided that it was time for a fresh little space.
There will of course still be photography, but also . . .
. . . a collection of all those quotes that I love to gather up and scribble down
. . . an agglomeration of photographs and links that inspire the imagination and the soul
. . . reflections on art and faith and beauty and all that I am learning
. . . a place to practice the act of listening and paying attention, to slow down and live more carefully
. . . a place to breathe deeply and to remember that there is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred
. . . to be quiet enough to hear the knock on the door and to notice all those little graces from above
. . . and hopefully a place where you can find grace too.

The first Monday of January is always one of my favorite days of the year. It seems like just the right time to begin afresh and to sink down once again into this wild and precious life.
