Picture Perfect: Twisted

Visions of cinnamon crullers, saffron wreath bread — we twist things to give them a pleasing form.  We may twist them for practicality — putting one’s hair up in a twist to get it out of the way.  Fine, weak elements may be twisted together and form something strong such as in rope-making.  Sometimes twisted is out of a desirable shape such as a nail hit the wrong way.  I hope my thinking will not become twisted.  Here is part of a curtain I made by twisting and knotting cotton cord normally used by masons to get things straight.  The leaf is one I picked up in the fall; it has retained some of its lovely red colour.  On the leaf is a feather which brings to mind a phrase by Hildegard von Bingen: my voice, a feather on the breath of God.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
