The Still Center of It All, Gazing Down Upon Us
I pause to remember the church, empty and unillumined except for the daylight filtering through the rose window. This icon of Our Lady above the altar, her metallic paints changing subtly with the light. Dust motes hovering in the air and the relative silence of only distant noise.
Now in this storm of e-mail, video, articles, newscasts, opinions, feelings, plans and acts I search within myself for this peace and gazing at your image, I find it.
