Who and what we really are

Artist: Jan Matejko

How beautiful. How unutterably beautiful:

The marvels of God are not brought forth from one's self.
Rather, it is more like a chord, a sound that is played.
The tone does not come out of the chord itself, but rather,
through the touch of the Musician.
I am, of course, the lyre and harp of God's kindness.

- Hildegard of Bingen

  2. I'm glad you like it, Cathy.

    Hildegard was truly amazing, wasn't she?

  3. She was completely amazing.

    BTW I said hello on the way home tonight to a very sweet, lovely, little black cat who lives on the corner of my street, Ellie.
