Gifts of Art

O'lover and I were the lucky recipients of many fine works of art this Christmas. The above piece is an ink drawing of Hildegard von Bingen by Rosi Hayes. This is so special to me! I used to carry a book of Hildegard's visions around as my security blanket (her many visions were an inspiration) and I wanted to name a daughter Hilde (pronounced hildee).

Ollie and I have a goal to celebrate this year at every opportunity. We will have a mini-festival for devout Hildegard on her feast day, September 17th.

The Brothers gave us works of art that I LOVE. When you visit the cottage and see their art you will be stunned.
