Want to know why Minneapolis was burning? Mama. He called Mama. He has called up great power. I want all of us to turn, all of us who have heard Mama in a store and thought it meant us. Its time to turn. White mamas, mamas with privilege, youve been summoned. Any of us who have ever cried out Mama, we hear it too, down in our bones. Its a cry that cant go unanswered anymore. So Minneapolis burns. And we need to gut all the spaces in our lives where systemic racism has quarter. I think of the other mamas who turned a tide: Emmett Tills, for one. We speak out of the deep mystery from whence all life springs. My white people: Nurture antiracism in your life like you would a child in your arms, even if youve only just heard it named. Learn what it means and how to foster it. Care about it, give it space in your life. Come to understand it, even if its difficult and challenges everything. Mama is coming. And the men who make order in the world should be very afraid ~Mary Helen Kennerly

The Spirit and Humanity of Nature, The Nature of Humanity and Spirit.

Doorways, Colors and the Magnificence of Nature. Places through which we may see beyond the normal confines of our everyday sight. Access points through which we may travel. The beauty and complexity of form and shape and color in all of nature leave me speechless. With my work I strive to capture the feelings these experiences bring to me and share them with others.
I grew up in northern Wisconsin on a farm, on an island. I grew up loving stories, myths, legends and songs. It was peaceful, gentle and beautiful there. Woods, fields, wildflowers, and views of the lake from rosy sunrise to golden sunset filled my life. What most amazed me were the intricacies of nature. The sight of a setting...
