“Mother and Child”, 2008
The mother’s love is not given to us to spoil us with indulgence,
but to soften our hearts,
that we may in turn soften others with kindness.

Phil Greenwood is an incredibly talented landscape artist who works mainly on copper plates. His beautiful etchings seldom relate to a specific place but instead envelope ideas and images recalled.
His piece “Blossom” has to be one of my favourites. Like none other, it beautifully captures and conveys the visual wonder and delight of spring. I find nothing says “spring” quite like it.
Every spring is the only spring — a perpetual astonishment.
— Ellis Peters

A source of embarrassment to many is a source of inspiration to Rebecca Harp.
Her paintings unapologetically draw us in and make us want to linger a while – quite the opposite to how we’d feel in real life.

Imagine meeting someone who understood even the dustiest corners of your mixed-up soul.
Continuing to explore the dustiest corners of my mixed-up soul via the Enneagram and beginning to see it as someone, an ancient, literary friend of sorts…
who’s helping me understand exactly who I am.
