Eyes to See

by Sr Nunother  

Each week day at 9:00 AM, I climb a stairway. At the top of the stairway is a window that I call my pausing place. I see a stone wall bordering a length of green lawn that leads to a cluster of trees, and beyond the trees, the waters of Cape Cod Bay. Sometimes the water is still but animated by splashes of sunlight; sometimes a blanket of waves, constant and rhythmic. In a moment I’ll open the door into my workplace — a suite of offices — all busy, all vital, and with different functions. There is work to be done, problems to solve, and personal differences to untwine. I don’t always handle it well. But there is my pausing place, steady and sure, when I am not.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
