This mischievous-faced Guardian holds the images which are my true prayers within a Bible Concordance that gives each word in the Bible and where it appears in the text. I grew up Roman Catholic and disentangled myself from the dogma by concentrating on my spirituality and connection to the Divine. These connections were based more in images than in the words of my catechism, more in the feelings I had in nature, and within my body.
