The Heart Shrine

The Heart Shrine

I created this Heart Shrine because we all have to recognize and respect the continuous beating of our own personal drum. But it goes deeper. Altars help us visually connect with what we may be working on. For me, I am continually working, refining and smoothing out the rough edges of my battered heart. And to fill this heart with love is the ultimate goal.

I've been thinking about the 'weighing of the heart' since the first mentioning. The idea has led me to inquire within about a number of things. Heather's giving and receiving life and love in equal amounts, leaving her heart to fly weightless to the heavens is wonderful. But always the dissenter, I hope for the opposite: by the time I die, I hope to have fit the whole world into my heart. I want my heart to be so dense with reality that it sinks back down into the stream of humanity when my body returns to ash and earth.

My heart, too, is misshapen. Like you, art and ideas and good people are massaging it gently into original form, but stronger, larger than before. For a woman who says she is not a writer, you have some invaluable words to spend. Writing is the communication of the experience of living. You do it well. I like your heart.

Luna, this is stunning. The composition, the colors breathe of heart and healing. (Maybe I'm just seeing healing?) Might I have permission to print this? I would like to look at it - just to look at it.
