At Last

September 27, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

Her nomination, and soon, her election (by no means assured unless we all get out there and phone bank and canvas and vote) measures a big, although nearly invisible, shift in American culture, one that was taking place during the two decades when some of us felt we were stranded in the old way.

The Beauty Way

September 14, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

The Navajo/Diné traditional prayer is called “The Beauty Way.” Here it is in Diné—the Navajo name for their nation—and translated into English.

In beauty I walk
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty around me I walk

It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again

Resisting the Annunciation

September 08, 2016 The Annunciation – Domenico Veneziano. Image from Wikiart.

By Sallie Bingham

I’ve always been intrigued by an alternative version of the Annunciation, that mysterious insemination, not mentioned in the Gospels until two hundred years after Jesus’ birth. My version allows for at least some ambiguity in Mary’s response to the Angel Gabriel’s announcement that she would become the mother of God. A print, possibly a version of Domenico Veneziano’s Annunciation, hung in my childhood bedroom, maybe because its pastel tones made it suitable for a girl, or maybe before its message was deemed equally appropriate.
