eternal timefulness

March 27, 2009 | Leave a comment

The process of creating renews my spirit, and I find myself attuned to the details of life rather than being stressed by being overwhelmed. I find myself listening rather than shouting into the void. Creating art opens my heart to see and listen to the world around me, opening a new vista of experience. This is the gift of the ‘second wind.’ Such a state taps into what I now call eternal timefulness.” – Makoto Fujimura in Refractions: a journey of faith, art, and culture
