Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words.
I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. I tutor ESL kindergartners. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.”
My understanding of God is derived from Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism primarily. I find a soul-friend in Rumi, the 13th century Sufi mystic. I also read from Taoist and Hindu texts.
Not all of my posts are about religion, but a lot of them are.
You are welcome to comment, but be advised that I will not reply to negative ones. I’ve decided I do not have the time, energy, or desire to explain or defend myself. I encourage you to start your own blog if you feel strongly about something I’ve said, whether for or against.
I wish you peace on your journey.
