I’ve been hard at work and have come up with a kind of frame to put around my work. More on this later, but for now I’ll just say the frame is called DESIRE LINES: Arts, Divine Intoxication. Faith.
Above are my logo and banner!
You’ll be seeing more of this in the coming week and months. We’re changing the name of my column at Angelus News, I’m having a Home Page worked up for this site, and you can look at the flyer I’ve worked up for the half-day workshop that I hope will be my first offering HERE.
Also, here’s a dear little video I shot and edited in the combination bedroom-music conservatory-office that serves as my monastic cell.
I’m quite proud that I managed not only to concoct a “title card” but also to overlay, more or less, a clip of Maria Callas singing La Bohème.
This I keep the demons at bay.
Let’s all keep one another in prayer.

Things are brewing and that makes me happy!
Ha never a dull moment, Tom–I had to do SOMETHING during COVID. lOVE TO YOU!!!
Close to the end of this date’s visit, you mentioned the time and that you were going to Mass. I wondered if all that incredibly intimate yet informal sharing is something you would do if you arrived at Church early and also said this to Jesus.
There is something so special in arriving early and centering with eyes closed and every bit of inside alert and humming.
Thank you for all you give us.
Thank you, Meg! Do you mean the intimate sharing at the end of the video? I pray each morning for an hour to an hour and a half each day before Mass and certainly before sitting down to attempt that video! In fact the video is simply a variation or continuation of the conversation/thoughts that go on in my heart all day…I wouldn’t be able to speak extemporaneously like that, especially on camera, otherwise. Anyway, you’re so right that getting to Mass early, which I don’t do nearly often enough, is a beautiful thing and a time to gather, pause, alertly listen…More slowing down and listening is ALWAYS indicated in my case…
Very Art Deco, Heather! It looks good, and it looks strong. — Kirk
Kirk, thank you for that vote of confidence! I have a web guy who’s designing a very cool home page with the banner/logo across the top–so more fun ahead. Wishing you a happy August!
