From the Book of Wisdom; Eulogy of Wisdom,

For within her is a spirit intelligent, holy,
unique, manifold, subtle,
mobile, incisive, unsullied,
lucid, invulnerable, benevolent, shrewd,
irresistible, beneficent, friendly to human beings,
steadfast, dependable, unperturbed,
almighty, all-surveying,
penetrating, all intelligent, pure
and most subtle spirits.

Ruth is an artist.  
To say the least.
"Elaine Pagels explains that some gnostics believed... Wisdom texts signified that God himself was a secondary power, created by the divine Mother, the Source of Life."  Ruth's beadwork is inspired and powered by her connection to Creator.  Opulance is catching!  Click on the middle image for a most amazing ray of gold!

This early evening, after a fulfilling day, I am listening to the wind in the chimes, the multilayered birdsong, the clouds deepening overhead.  Yes, I can hear them gathering.  I am listening to an inner layer which is whispering, "Let us go to the river!"

Then, we will return to the studio.

I'm so glad to know you love the wind. I felt a pang of guilt as I took my wind chime inside and layed it to rest on top of the dryer. It's just too windy for my already irritable mind.

Beautiful beadwork of my favourite sounds too is hearing the wind in chimes mixed with birdsong of course*!*
