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
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.

Aboard the Arabella: Last Day, August 17 (Part 4)

August 26, 2016

By: Sallie Bingham 

I’ve been waiting to get on shore, but now I find waves of sentiment washing across my mood; this experience, with this boat and this crew, won’t be repeated. And it is precious. Yesterday we took the tender to Menemsha on Martha’s Vineyard, another of these seaside resort towns which easily become monotonous: the clam shack, the sailing boats and power boats tied to buoys, the little rowboats with motors skittering around. An attempt to walk left us on a trail through a bog and the deep, welcome shade of an oak forest, but in a matter of minutes, we were out on a paved road and that was the end of the “hike.”

Aboard the Arabella:Tied up to a Buoy off Martha’s Vineyard, August 16 (Part 3)

August 25, 2016

By: Sallie Bingham

One of Oscar Wilde’s poems, “The Ballad of Reading Gaol” has a line lamenting, “…that little tent of blue Which prisoners call the sky”—his feeling when jailed on charges of indecency or some such after his relationship with a young man was revealed. I used to repeat that line to myself when washing dishes in a Manhattan apartment beneath a window that opened onto an airshaft; now, it comes to mind in my tiny cabin with its porthole that shows a bit of sea and sky.
