Care of the Soul
by Kerry Blecha, RScP
This is the beautiful, sunny, warm day to sit in my grandpa chair. I listen to the bubbling pond, hear birds sing and read in my book Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore. He writes that journal keeping is “making a home for certain images that have been transforming.” Further, “Culturally of course we are invited into the depths of ourselves by the plays, paintings, sculptures and buildings of past centuries.” By being the curator of our own images we care for our souls. Moore writes as Ernest Holmes teachers, “Once we have entertained an image it is always potentially present to our gaze. “ As with the flowers I have become flexible, beautiful and planted.
