Last year I was bothered by a cantankerous mental looping, and I prayed for assistance out of that. The familiar Teacher said “Paint Sacred Hoops.” I reviewed past decades of sketchbooks and image/word journals, and found a plethora of circular imagery. Now, there was given a stronger more loving purpose. The “talking story” affirms continuity and cyclicity, inviting reminders that we must each hold a personal sacred hoop in our hearts, and we must each cultivate our Light-filled relationships in any arenas which beckon us. We must live like we matter, and my nature-spirit-art is a daily reminder of that.
