I made an overnight trip to Duluth, Minnesota in early August to see the eight tall ships that had sailed into the harbor as part of a summer tour of the Great Lakes. A ship is one of those archetypal images that touch us at a deep level, evoking both our vulnerability to the elements and our ability to fashion vessels (of many types) that transcend our limitations. I was especially taken with this one’s red sails.

The winds of grace are always blowing,
it is you who must raise your sails.

Editor’s note: Baya Clare travels a lot and we are blessed that she brings her camera and eye for sacred beauty with her.

Everyone is a traveler.
Most all need lodging, food, and clothes.
I let enter my mouth what will enrich me.
I wear what will make my eye content.
I sleep where I will wake with the strength
to deeply love all my mind can hold.

 

What is God’s will for a wing?
Every bird knows that.

St. Teresa of Avila
