Here is the first or second doodle I drew. I had brought my prismacolor pencils, which I had stopped doing a few years ago. Something new is happening here.
Here is the result of praying about the blessing of three administrators supporting me in my quest to get a masters in spirituality. Sophia in earth tones reaches out to them.
I imagine a gate to my heart cracking open and I can see Sophia. This one hung on my door for the rest of the retreat. Later when I felt cracked open, I had a moment of wondering why I would have asked for such a thing.
the card I sent Margaret, inspired by Cyrus Chestnut's "You Are My Sunshine." I sent it knowing the song would get stuck in her head, but wanting to know how I felt.
I imagine Sophia reaching toward me in the center of this doodle. Looks like daggers, maybe I hadn't gotten to that gentle stuff yet.
Sophia and I reach out to open the gate that keeps darkness inside of me and light out. Inspired by the thought of a cell dividing after sending out spindle fibers.
I am immersed by a gentle Sophia.
I imagine a gentle Sophia enveloping Margaret.
