Discovered

This statue is outside the basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe (where we’ve been on vacation).  The statue is called “St. Francis Dancing on Water.”  I fell in love with it.  The artist is Monika Kaden.  I took a ton of photos of it, these are just three.  I think if you click on them you get the bigger version.

 

And then I found this Rumi poem, thanks to the artist:
DANCE, WHEN YOU’RE BROKEN OPEN.
DANCE, IF YOU’VE TORN THE BANDAGE OFF.
DANCE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIGHTING.
DANCE IN YOUR BLOOD.
DANCE, WHEN YOU’RE PERFECTLY FREE.
Rumi

Amen.
