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

Kindness Shall Not Depart

Got to the church earlier today. Walked through the housing estate flanking it. A little canal runs through the estate and past the church; it’s drained of water now, but I imagine it quite pretty when filled. People were just

It has been a surreal week. Preparing for KK’s upcoming move to Melbourne. Making a favourite dessert. Having unusual weekday family meals out. Waiting in a project-less period marked by pencil bookings in the weeks to come. Meeting up with

A believing life (22): Stirring

The last few days have been precious, an unusual kind of steady. Work (lots of it, though not all productive use of time), prayer, song, plea. Meet ups. More running around in a day than I would like. A few

A believing life (21): Draw me nearer

Got down to the swatch today. Some colours are different – in the pan, and on paper. I could never tell. Water makes the paint dance. The colours have a mind of their own. I don’t quite understand. In any case, was quite

Lent 2014: Desert Solace

Every year for the past 3 years, Lent has taken on a deeper meaning. Maybe it has to do with seeing more grief – illnesses, accidents, deaths, betrayals, boastfulness, indifference, taunts, sadness. But I’ve also seen unexpected good – small
