Ah… our young woman Sophia continues her journey toward her independence and wisdom. Here she has found a place to hide in the night. An ancient hollow tree. She has been awakened by the stirring of crows in the distance. What could this mean?
There is something about Sophia that is at once unsettling and beautiful. She seems vulnerable and I want to protect her. But she also seems strong and insists on finding her own way. Her whole life has been prescribed and dictated. She must find her own courage, strength and voice in order to live her own life. Only when this is accomplished will she return to community. Until then she’ll live the arduous but necessary life of a wandering hermit.
I know she is the picture of my spirit.
