A few days before Easter I returned home after walking a pilgrimage path in Spain. The experience touched my heart, soul and mind deeply. The physical challenge fell away quickly as each step brought me closer to feeling connected to every soul “walking” this earth. I found , within myself, the sorrows, joy, and forgiveness of humanity. This painting emerged on Easter Sunday as I reflected on the stirrings of compassion and the feeling of being connected to all living energy – past, present and future.
