The Bare Bones of Grace
When humbled into the open, often against our will, our bones can rattle like wind chimes, making beautiful and haunting music, though it aches to do so. - MARK NEPO
The emptying half of life makes my bones rattle. But it also leaves me softened, lighter, clattering in the breeze and tumbling in the tide, content to land where the wind and waves take me. It delights me to see the paint manifest these stories in ways words cannot.

Patti, OMG! Mark Nepo...so wise. And always resonates. These passages are from his book "The One Life We're Given." I've been reading a chapter a week for over a year.

Letting go! I guess that is life's lesson, probably the hardest! Such an emotional and sensitive portrait! I see a mother and child in this image!
