But if I’ve learned anything, it is that goodness prevails, not in the absence of reasons to despair, but in spite of them. If we wait for clean heroes and clear choices and evidence on our side to act, we will wait forever, and my radio conversations teach me that people who bring light into the world wrench it out of darkness, and contend openly with darkness all of their days.
~ Krista Tippett Speaking of Faith
Some days I can arrange and rearrange words and hand them to other people and explain all the things – what I see and what I need. I solve problems and go to gym and move through task easily. Other days, words are a foreign language and engagement with the world eludes me. On those days I paint or pick up the camera and let color, light and shadow speak. It is a relief not to always have to explain or understand. To simply allow my heart and soul to have their voice.
May you speak your truth in words, light and paint as it serves.
