Winds Of Eternity

It is winter.

In the early morning I place lichen-covered
twigs that have fallen from the old madrones
into the blackened stove, slowly
adding dry pine that catches quickly
to fill the cold, dark cabin with
redeeming light.

THE CREATIVE VOICE. This is the eighth in a series of monthly posts that will explore the sources of creative inspiration of living artists. Featured artists will speak of the unique circumstances that cause the Muses to visit them, and how they understand and interpret what the Muses are imparting. The artists will share their personal intuitions and insights, sometimes by telling a story, sometimes by explaining a concept or vision. May this exhilarating voyage encourage and motivate the artist in each of us.

Be kind to your sleeping heart.

Root Cellars & Bright City Lights

I was scared to death of Gramma Ell’s root cellar. I swear it felt like darkness pushed down on me as soon as I entered and the scent of it crept into my nose and filled my ears with worms and dirt. I would stand at the door, one toe and one hand reaching carefully into the darkness while the other foot planted itself firmly on the last inch of daylight and the other hand glued itself to the door frame. The hand that was reaching into the darkness was searching for the cord to turn on the single low watt bulb, the only light source. The searching toe was making sure there was still a floor to stand on beneath all that dark.

Having arrived just before sunset and settled in to my room the night before, I awoke with the gentle sun of early dawn. My room in the New Camaldoli Monastery’s retreat house was utterly simple—bed, rocker, desk, chair—and perfectly comfortable. The west end of the room was a huge window and a door opening onto a small private garden area with a fig tree and the vast blue of the Pacific Ocean beyond.
