Path and Pattern

Nothing elaborate to write tonight. I'm thinking, and I do that very slowly. I've been thinking, for example, about this painting for about a year now, and I still haven't come to any fruitful way of putting forward my ideas of it. I'm not in a rush to do that. Some things are worthy of a great deal of contemplation, and this painting is one of those things, for me.

Tanner, Henry Ossawa

My birthday, and also that of one of the Doctors of the Catholic church, St. Catherine Of Siena, a Mystic.
Consider her work in your contemplation.
The Feast of the Annunciation is March 25th.
