HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL – JAN. 19, 2017 – SHEROES & HEROES: ARTISTS

Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Assistant Director, Reiki Master, and Psychic Kali Meister

“In the bigger scheme of things the universe is not asking us to do something, the universe is asking us to be something. And that’s a whole different thing.’ ~ Lucille Clifton

Lucille Clifton was an American poet, writer, and educator from Buffalo, New York. From 1979 to 1985 she was Poet Laureate of Maryland. Clifton was nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

Clifton’s poems are committed to truth-telling in the face of silence. History in her work is embodied, alive, and autonomous, alert to its own contradictions. As in “study the master” she elucidates the ironies of history without using an ironic tone.

Today’s Action: Make a list of the things you are–not the things you do, but the things you ARE.
