An Urban Hearth

I don’t have anything akin to a real hearth so mine is the top of an entertainment cabinet.    The image is of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a common manifestation in these parts of the divine feminine archetype.  She is in a handcrafted tin frame I picked up in Mexico.    The clock is nearly 150 years old, sold to my great-great grandfather in return for two ten-hours days of farm labor.   When the lights are off and the candles lit, it is no longer just the top of my entertainment cabinet, but it becomes a sacred space where creativity dwells — at least I like to think so.
