Yesterday I wrote about Julian of Norwich (see this post and this post). It's been an unusually noisy week, both at work and in my neighborhood--and in my head.
I find myself yearning for the calm that comes in the best sacred spaces. I find myself longing for a cathedral cell. I want to believe I'd be more creative if I could just find quiet. I'd certainly be less irritable.
So, let me see if I can manufacture a virtual experience of the calm that comes with sacred space.
Each of these pictures shows the worship space at Mepkin Abbey in a different year.
I thought it would be interesting to see the flower/plant arrangements from different times. Maybe in my regular life, which doesn't include multiple daily trips to a sacred space, I could find some quiet relief in nature. Or, if not in nature, then in flowers that I bring inside.
feeling the feelings…
