“Holed Up for a Year, I Hope…”
Holy Week blog post from KC Robertson
During the last week of pre-shutdown innocence, I got a little piece of art delivered to me that has since lived on my bedside table. It reads as followed:
“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.”
These words from Zoe Skylar evolved into being my shutdown crutch and my prayer for our world, because man, have we all been going through the most gaseous, crumbliest collapse of a nebula this past year! You have. I have. We all have.
We have all crumbled and we all collapsed.
And now we have our most glorious stardust to show for it! When have you seen the birth of light in places that were once dark in your life? At what moment did you discover a shift from the sorrow of a collapsed being on into the joy of a resurrected new light? Where have you seen stardust come to life in places unexpected?
Holed up for a year, I hope you now sprinkle your stardust profusely.
