Since this past September, I have been leading a monthly discussion group, sponsored by the Shalom Center at the Queen of Angels Monastery in Mt. Angel OR. Called the Creative/Spiritual Life Circle, the group is dedicated to exploring our innate, God-given, inter-connected identifies as creative and spiritual beings. It’s not an art class, not a workshop, not a coaching session — just a conversational exploration of what all this means to our lives.
All are welcome! We convene (Zoom) on the 3rd Saturday of the month. I present a theme, offer some thoughts for reflection — and the group goes from there. Let me know if you’d like more info, or contact the Monastery at www.benedictine-srs.org
Watercolors by Aurora painters Ginny Stevens and Jim Lane are currently gracing the walls at the White Rabbit Bakery on 99E. Beautiful art — and delicious coffee and baked goodies — sure help get us thru the pandemic!
Life gives, and life takes away. It was a tough summer for the two older hens at our place, and my happiness about raising a large flock was short-lived. On June 7, beautiful Helen (Frankenthaler) (l) died of unknown causes. On August 11, beautiful Jane (Eyre) (r) died from complications of being “egg bound” (an egg that cannot be laid and cannot be removed from the body). Helen was a sweet “mother hen” type. Jane was stately and dignified. I miss their unique presence in the chicken yard!
