Two Lives

One of my favorite quotes:
We have two lives – the one we learn with and the life we live after that.
Bernard Malamud

Let me get this straight…

I’ve begun a formal process, one that I’ll elaborate on in due time. Suffice it to say that this process requires some reflection, and that this illustration is an autobiographical by-product of that reflection. I won’t include any analysis of this real event in my life at this particular point, but I do hope to so as soon as I’m able to coax out a pattern or two.

This drawing was done on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and Paper by Fifty Three.

“Heaven is reserved for people who like surprises.” Personal communication. Demetrius Dumm, O.S.B.

N.B. I add this particular note a couple of years later, November 9, 2016 to be precise. When I originally posted this, I did not know that Fr. Demetrius had just died a few weeks earlier. His death came as a surprise to me sometime in early 2014. Click here for his obituary and here for books written by him.
