In these days

The days draw us to this day and asks if we are ready?


I wonder why you brought me
to these splintering days,
this age of earth-death
and default extinction
and the smothering of constellations,

nostalgia claws at me
screaming send me back,

then I sense a fire that doesn’t consume,
a cloud of breath-taking holiness
passing across the face of a mountain
and it says

I put you here to see,
to see and hear and feel
the agony,
I needed someone whose heart would break,
who would fall to their knees
send me.

Gideon Heugh, from Devastating Beauty

A voice for our time, knowing when to be quiet and sit in the shadows – accompanying those who mourn – yet, is also prepared to learn the new song that the world is waiting to hear.

Are we ready?

This day – 11th September 2021.


This week

This week has been an unexpected exploration of time and shadows. It has caught me by surprise. Yet, it makes sense at the week’s end, and I appreciate all those who joined in the conversation. Thank you.
