Angels are the sensory sparks at the periphery of our imagination.

Our ears hear what our mind is able to comprehend. We hear that which our other senses prompt us to hear. When our ears detect a sound that we are unable to comprehend, our mind struggles to classify it. In this sensory “twilight” the voices of angels are perceived.

What subtle messages are contained in a meadow soundscape on a summer night? What secrets are whispered by the gentle waves lapping a shoreline? What quiet confidences are chortled by the wood thrush? I invite you to close your eyes and deeply listen. Angel voices are everywhere.
