Late Have I Loved You

by Artist Eye

When I was a small child, I once ventured to wrap a present by myself and wound up using an entire roll of tape to accomplish the task. As I recall, my mother’s consternation over the project had not so much to do with the cost of a roll of tape, but how unrelentingly intense my focus on securing that package had been. In the end, it didn’t matter what the package contained, my determination that it be properly wrapped clearly communicated that, in my estimation, this was some present.

 This past week-end we celebrated the release of a new book about our church. As books go, I’d say this one received some pretty intense attention to detail: in its conception, in its writing and photography, and in its design and finishings; this book is a package done up with more than a few rolls of tape. But the real thing isn’t the package, the real thing, in my estimation, is being able to give away the beauty and the life our church and its art have blessed us with.

About Artist's Eye

Our family moved to the Community in 1990. While raising our two children here I've worked at Paraclete Press and have been involved with Fine Arts over the years. I love to paint, tell stories, and build puppets--a thirty foot whale and her baby for the Spirit of America Band Field Show was one of the funnest projects I've ever done!
