in 2010 i began a virtual pilgrimage.
i was very cheeky and called this
a virgin a day.
to begin each morning with a heart for mary,
a way of igniting mine by honoring hers;
culminating on her feast day december 12.
i hoped this simple gesture would align the
scattered hurried days of december with an all prevailing light;
a stillness of devotion, a tide of love,
this morning humbled i begin once more;
i hope you will join me.
