The faint sound of a rooster's crow, the ceiling fan whirring, and rain frogs chirping from last night's shower. That is ALL I heard this morning upon waking from a deeply lucid, deeply restful (which don't typically coincide for me) slumber in my new country home. For the past year and a half, I have lived in town, where there...

I am currently reading Awakening the Creative Spirit: Bringing the Arts to Spiritual Direction by Christine Valters Paintner and Betsey Beckman. This required reading for a course I am currently enrolled is filled with gems.
