you have to step forth


Things lately:

Lent has been a reminder of how little I actually live the way I profess to want to live. Mainly, that I want to live simpler, less attached to things. I want to be more generous, to give more away, to have fewer clothes in my closet, to be less concerned about cleanliness, more concerned about the way my actions effect the earth, most of all concerned about love. I want to want the pearl of great price.

If I had a kitchen, I would make this today. 

The most important thing is to show up. You have to step forth. Being an artist is not about the perfect environment or inspiration, it is about showing up.

Best combination: good bread, fig jam, goat's cheese, prosciutto, thyme, and ground pepper.

This article about photography in the digital age.

Poet of the week: Susanna Childress. (Might have been reading Jagged With Love during chapel every day this week. Also, her husband's music.)

Photographer of the week: Sophie Calle

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. (Matthew 13:45-46)
