"Works like The Visionary call upon us to act with what I would call a ‘natural morality.’ Such a morality is not forced from outside, but rises from within."
There is something wordless, deep, and resonant that inspires people in the movement toward the ineffable. And yet, the ineffable calls on us to act—often with inspired words that are the natural outflow of its presence. This is what comes to me from Birgitte’s brilliant work The Visionary—as it spoke to me in recognition of my own visions and aspirations, my own call to write and convey inspired language and images. A calling like that can lead us to create art, be the rallying cry for social justice, or simply inspire us to engender positive energy and hope.
