Skunkwworks 16: A full leap

29 February! It has been four years. A full leap. So much has happened since that “leap in a leap year”. An arc dotted with precious learning. Things done right, things gone wrong. Excesses shed, simplicity gained. Doors opened, roads

Closing with a chrysalis

This Advent and Christmas, we had some special visitors. Twin caterpillars 🙂 One of them (Le) eventually ran away before pupating; the other (Mon) stayed; through her, I was blessed, consoled, and strengthened. In watching both of them grow, I saw

The Artist

  The last 2 days have been good. It’s hard to put in words what has gone on interiorly. Let’s just say His Spirit comforts, lifts, counsels, teaches and accompanies – exactly right. Am extremely grateful for the pieces that

Interesting morning. Was there and yet not. The process itself was a blessing. I’ve not viewed the journey through a Listening lens yet, and this proved a good time to do so. Saw how the pieces fell in place just when

A believing life (20): In the gaps

So much of me misses and wishes to go back to late April. Live Selah again. But it’s unrealistic… right? * Since that blessed pause, things have been rolling. “That’s good news, isn’t it?”, some people say. Yes. Of course.

Skunkwworks 14: Two

2 years. The studios is 2 years old today! It feels like much longer. So many experiences. Rewarding, regrettable, redeeming, restful… and reflective of who I am becoming. I have known great grace and mercy. Am thankful. The past 2

A believing life (17): Reunion

The last 3 weeks have been a colourful mix of tensions, resolved dangers, new issues, disappointments, immense safety, purging, surprises, great care, incredible help, peace, new discoveries, quiet moments, exhausting stretches, ambiguous steps, ridiculous situations, funny times, poignant memories, celebrations,

A believing life (15): See in the dark

We were at DID this morning. Very glad D asked me along. It would otherwise have been another exteriorly rushy-yet-rootless, interiorly noisy-yet-barren morning and probably restless & fightful night later. I wasn’t afraid to step into pitch black; it felt like

A believing life (14): You’ll Find

It’s taken a very long time to come to a point where I can listen a little like I used to, and not run away immediately in disbelief or shame. And even dare to post the music without feeling counterfeit!

A believing life (9): Deal

The corks have no particular connection to my present thoughts. Just thought I’d put up a picture because I spent an afternoon getting and putting them together. It was a surprisingly peaceful activity. I don’t recall many times this year

It is, at this point, a mix of graces in the darkness that continues. Remembering graces past. Praying to see clearly, graces in the present. And seeking faith for graces already prepared for the future. Being able to write this,

April has been a crazy month. Wall-to-wall schedule. Rolling with the punches. Laughing about the insanity. Pulling stunts. Picking up jaw from ground a few times. Still scratching head about some things. It hasn’t been healthy. Where I had the
