Circumspectively returning to virtual life . . .
The Martyrdom of Saint Cecilia, Stefano Maderno

In my art blog-wanderings today, stumbled across St. Cecilia - patron saint of music, as well as that of musicians, composers, instrument makers, poets, and the blind - who reportedly continued to sing despite her severed head. Hmm. I'm not so sure it couldn't have happened.
The months that have passed since I last posted anything in the virtual world have been full and heavy indeed. So many things have "died" of late - metaphorically and literally. But I sit on a deep hoard of hope. Not the desperate hope that clings to having everything resolved according to my demands, or the wishful kind of hope that expects to win a lottery, but the kind of hope that rides through the storms of life and gives life and joy.
My heart still sings despite its severed state.
I hope to be creating and posting artwork again soon and to finally get my revamped Etsy store stocked. Until next time, have a wondrous day!
