"I love, therefore I am vulnerable!" - M.L.
.So happy that @madeleinelengle 's @wrinkleintime is getting its due acclaim. But please check out her book: "Walking on Water: Reflections on Art and Faith.
This is in the top 10 books that have influenced my life... An amazing read that explores our artistic work as a channel/vessel from the Divine!
See quotes below:
-"When the work takes over, then the artist is enabled to get out of the way, not to interfere.
. . -"But unless we are creators, and what do I mean about reators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint of clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living. Creativity is not limited to the arts, or having some kind of important career." .
-"...In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there's no danger that we will confuse God's work with our own, or God's glory with our own..."
