A Harvest of Thresholds

By Jan Richardson

With Advent just around the corner (this year it begins on November 30), the coming season is on my mind. I am all for not rushing into the next season before this one is done (though Ordinary Time does go on for such a long stretch and I’m about ready for a shift), but I did treat myself to one Christmas CD recently (the wondrous La Bela Naissença: Christmas Carols from Provence) to inspire me as I worked on a new print. The print features the twenty-five collages that I created for this blog last year.

The new print is available on my web site, either by visiting the main page at janrichardson.com or by going straight to the Color Prints page. With its invitation to cross the thresholds of Advent with a mindfulness that sometimes eludes us in the weeks leading to Christmas, it makes a nifty gift for yourself and others. I’d be delighted for you to stop by and check it out, and also to pay a visit to my other blog, The Painted Prayerbook, where I’ll continue to write and create art until Advent begins. I look forward to painting some new thresholds here at The Advent Door when the new season gets rolling.

Until then, may the presence of God linger close to you in these ordinary days.
