a gate

A  gate – a symbol of, if not hope, then at least transition.  It is a color xerox of a sketchbook page, scanned into a B&W PDF, then photoshopped (a little) — [from the “Jackets, Blankets and Sheets” sketchbook].  And to go with that gate, an almost randomly picked quote from Annie Dillard:

“We are most deeply asleep at the switch when we fancy that we control any switches at all. We sleep to time’s hurdy-gurdy; we wake, if we ever wake, to the silence of God. And then, when we wake to the deep shores of light uncreated, then when the dazzling dark breaks over the far slopes of time, then it’s time to toss things, like our reason, and our will; then it’s time to break our necks for home.”

from “Holy the Firm”

    Actually, as soon as I figure out why my scanner isn’t being seen by the computer, I’ll show this page in color. The swipes are paint swipes over a collage and not something I did in photoshop. All I did there was brighten the image a little and heighten the contrast (a tweak I often use to make my pictures look a little better).

    Hope you find time to sit today!
