|Born of earth - 5 by 7 watercolor|
The hustle of Christmas season invades the places of peace this season, as churches around the world prepare.
I love the adobe missions and churches in northern New Mexico, many of them centuries old, rising from the mother earth, beacons of strength and eternity in a feeble and often cruel world.
There's a silent serenity, an agelessness, a comfort in their thick walls, in their solid timbers. The nearby graves in their campos santos remind all who enter, born of earth...
Life is brief...is that not a message of Christmas?
