Continuing my Eὐχαριστέω - Multitudes on mondays

 Inne i den väldiga romanska kyrkan trängdes turisterna i halvmörkret.
Valv gapande bakom valv och ingen överblick.
Några ljuslågor fladdrade.
En ängel utan ansikte omfamnade mig
och viskade genom hela kroppen:
"Skäms inte för att du är människa, var stolt!
Inne i dig öppnar sig valv efter valv oändligt.
Du blir aldrig färdig, och det är som det skall."
Jag var blind av tårar
och föstes ut på den solsjudande piazzan
tillsammans med Mr. och Mrs. Jones, Herr Tanaka och Signora Sabatini
och inne i dem alla öppnade sig valv bakom valv oändligt.


Inside the huge Romanesque church the tourists jostled in the half darkness.Vault gaped behind vault, no complete view.
A few candle flames flickered.
An angel with no face embraced me
and whispered through my whole body:
“Don’t be ashamed of being human, be proud!
Inside you vault opens behind vault endlessly.
You will never be complete, that’s how it’s meant to be.”
Blind with tears
I was pushed out on the sun-seething piazza
together with Mr. and Mrs. Jones, Mr. Tanaka, and Signora Sabatini,
and inside each of them vault opened behind vault endlessly.

Continuing my Eὐχαριστέω

21 … Life’s changing ways, making us live consciously
22 … A good backrub – dozing off in the process
23 … The joy of planning
24 … Student living quarters – young men’s god choice in room-mate
25 … filling the freezer with ready lunchboxes
26 … Plums, heavenly sweet, from own tree
27 … Blogging
28 … selling the car –at last
29 … Good people wanting to buy the car – nice!
30 … Old wallpaper coming down – preparing for a change
31 … Licensed wolf-hunt of for this winter. Go wolfs!
32 … Warm compassionate hand on my arm when feelings overflow
33 … Plums! Plums! Plums!
34 … Money in the bank. Thank you, car-buyers!
35 … hearing, from my corner in the sofa, cars rushing past in the distance, telling me the world is out there if I need it
36 … Wise, thinking, blogging, women
37 … color pencils, brightening my word
38 … Really cold milk – a taste of heaven
39 … Umbrellas in the car … forgotten … bringing laughter

40 … Invitation to confirmation (Lutherans)
