day13_vision

Before we moved back to Kokomo, I’d forgotten how beautiful Indiana skies could be.  Although the lack of sun during Michigan winters didn’t drastically effect my mood, the bright blue in the summer, watching dark clouds bring in a storm, or the articulate night sky has shocked me multiple since we moved back.  I didn’t realize I missed it.  I know other places in the world are flatter, but the miles and miles and miles you can see from one vantage point in Central Indiana is a bit ridiculous.  I can see the stop light at State Road 19 and 22/35 from 4 miles away at the stop light at 19 and 26.  You cannot ignore the great expanse.  You can’t feel big here.

What fills your vision today?

Published by Magdalene A.R. Mastin

Magdalene is a pursuer of all things beautiful, inviting others into a life with steady integration of all they say, think, act, eat, love, and enjoy--hopeful for a more centered, peaceful existence, both inside and out. Today, she offers spiritual direction, movement and yoga classes, and women’s retreats, incorporating contemplative Christian spiritual practices, contemporary and authentic movement, and the ancient way of yoga (with a fun side job of lifestyle and commercial photography). Past students and directees have joked that there are few others in the world as dedicated to boundaries, intentionality, rest, and weird voices as Maggie. Magdalene grew up on a small organic sustainable farm in central Indiana, raised in a family of avid readers, generous doers, truth seekers, and good food lovers. Those early experiences laid a great foundation for further mind-body-soul integrative training at Hope College (BA in English and Arts Ministry), Fall Creek Abbey (Certified Spiritual Director), and BodyWorks Studio (200hr YTT). If she’s doing exactly what she wants, you will probably find her on a porch, patio, or beach, drink in hand, dancing away or chatting about life and love and happiness with all her people, especially her partner Jeff and their three kiddos.
