Advent Widening

“It came to me, recently, that faith is ‘a certain widening of the imagination.’ When Mary asked the angel, ‘How shall these things be?’ She was asking God to widen the imagination. All my life I’ve been requesting the same thing — a baptized imagination that has a wide enough faith to see the numinous in the ordinary. Without discarding reason, or analysis, I seek from my muse, the Holy Spirit, images that will open up reality and pull me in to the center.” ~ Lucy Shaw

How are you pulled in to the center?
