Creation’s curriculum…

What is this pressure I feel?

I can’t do this straight-lined reasoning —

I’ve tried to live the linear life . . .

climb the ladder . . .


This is not Creation’s curriculum

Paradoxes, anomalies, and mysteries are all about . . .


Why is it we only look up to the heavens for Light?

Could it be Illumination is also underneath?

Underneath the depths of our shadows and darkness . . .

We will only know if we “ride our monsters all the way down!”*


I have heard it said that Light keeps shining in the dark,

and the darkness cannot over take it . . .


Mystery and Paradox —

Creation’s curriculum . . .

Your combination of beautiful pictures, thoughtful verse, spirituality, and sensitivity to the teaching hand of God is inspiring. I no longer remember how I happened on your blog over a year ago, but I am glad I did. I appreciate it. Thanks

I love Annie Dillard’s writings, too. Your photos and poetry are also lovely.
Have you ever read Barbara Hurds book, Into the Stone? I think it speaks to your thoughts here.

Thanks so much! I have not read Barbara Hurds book, but will. Thanks for pointing me in this direction.
