Pieces of Today, June 18th

1. A snatch of sketch from a six-month art project…
Sam Spider Sketch - Copy
2. Penny and Sparrow, their soft acoustic songs that go on rolling off your tongue through the days. Like Brothers (because sometimes? All that counts is, don’t give up). Like Heroes and Monsters (because we’re all a bit tied to the Silver Chair and the moon’s gonna rise no matter what). Like Creature (every joy I’ve seen is waste when I touch your gorgeous face), like Slaves (because, I’m a new slave, yes, my name has been changed, I am yours.)

3. The long spring of kinky lettuce and the lastavice infants in the shed:

4. The undulating, undisciplined brilliance of Hopkins. A thought from Wreck of the Deutschland:

Beyond saying sweet, past telling of tongue,
Thou art lightning and love, I found it, a winter and warm;

Marilynne Robinson on Wonder

A thought from Marilynne Robinson today, as I’m traveling with limited internet access. To you and yours, so much joy! If you are like me, you are still learning this thing, and coming along very slowly. But OH, let’s learn it, because not everyone who calls Him, “Lord, Lord,” will come into the Kingdom. This is the one who will come in: the one who does the will. And this is it:

in everything give thanks
