Thin Places

Kevin Kaiser posted this video on his blog last Saturday, in which he discusses how all artists (songwriters, painters, sculptors, speakers, writers…I would add in here, parents*) are in this thin place where heaven and earth touch.

We, as artists, talk about more than we know.  We talk about love and grace and truth, in ways that others might not be able to.

It is our responsibility…and privilege.

Something to think about on this windy Saturday morning.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

*Parents are always fielding brilliant heaven/earth questions.  Is there a God?  What does He look like?  Where does He live?  If God made the world, who made God?  Where are the angels?  Do angels have wings?  Where did my puppy go when he died?  If I die, where am I going?  If you die, where are you going?  Will I be able to see you?

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
