my dear friend and fellow writer Denise Roper will be leading two panel discussions at ImagiCon in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, May 22. The panels are about the Harry Potter books vs. the films (visit her blog at http://phoenixweasley.wordpress.com for more about this).
Speaking of conventions, my talented friend Ben Wu drew something special for me, a piece I shall use to make postcards for my loved ones who will be coming to Infinitus (less than two months from now)…
It is amazing. Somehow, he always seems to capture what is going on inside my heart, to illustrate all that is most important to me, my longing and struggles; my quiet joy, which is inseparable from a peaceful sort of mourning, a tender, inner sigh, a declaration of love: my spiritual life, that is to say, my communion with the Compassionate One, the One-Who-Suffers-With, the One who forgives and liberates.
I have been reading Le Pouvoir de Pardonner by Lytta Basset. Her writings are giving me much to ponder, and have been a fount of delight to me.
