Stunned but too much in shock to even understand what had happened, she floated up to realms above the Earth, but never so far that she could not see what had happened, how so many had forgotten the very foundation of all the churches built in his name. The skies were light and purple but she herself felt distorted, maimed and mocked, disfigured by the way she had caved under all the falsity.
She felt through all the years as if she had failed him and her own heart. An eternal perpetuation, this story which was not at all the story—their story in the life before and her story, too, and the story of how it was meant to be then and now, there and here.
Still, she floats and she floats free.
What is your essential story of life? What is alive in you?
I hope this painting has sparked a reconnection and remembrance for you today. I believe there is beauty to be found right here, right now, all around you and right there within you.
I'll meet you on the way!
