I go to her work to be reminded of everything true. She has a magical way of showing it to us,  even the things that are hard are full of beauty. Her honor of living all of life is palpable and rich. I am honored to have my dear friend Cynthia Henebry share her art and life with us today. 

This guest post is for Patience, in honor of the darkest time of the year. Darkness is essential to our noticing the light.

“To go into the dark with a light is to know the light
To know the dark, go dark, go without sight
And find that the dark, too, blooms and sings
And is traveled by dark feet and dark ways”
-Wendell Berry
