Art has power

“Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful,

make loneliness a shared experience,

and transform despair into hope. “

       from Brené Brown, Braving the Wilderness 

After the trauma of August 11/12, 2017 in Charlottesville a hummingbird visited me on the front porch. How do art and beauty speak into your pain, loneliness and frustration?

  1. I love your hummingbird. I am waiting for the hummingbirds to come back to our feeder. It is a sign of hope. I have to take a walk each day looking for God’s beauty and variation in creation because they days seem so undifferentiated.
