We are making a big move at the end of the summer, so travel has been on my mind. This move is different than my past travels. I have a real home here, for the first time since I was a kid, and I am going to move with my tiny family and establish a new home elsewhere. I’m not desperately seeking anything, I’m not trying to escape anything, and my accomplishments do not depend upon being on the road.
Today, in honor of the special devotion of the Church during the month of May to the Blessed Virgin, I offer a five-day prayer to Mary with St. Catherine of Siena:
The feast day of St. Catherine of Siena is April 29th. I consider her my Patron Saint, the woman who helped bring me to the Church.
My name is Alana Solomon and I am an artist, writer, and Binghamton undergrad majoring in medieval and early modern history.
I was raised in central California and Seattle, Washington. This blog is my journal, as well as a space for documenting creative processes and art projects and sharing sources of inspiration.
Here is the ever-evolving blogroll, and a bibliography of sources cited in posts.
