I was lucky to have a glorious hour at the Tate Modern museum this past week, where the enchanting papery sculptures of Maria Bartuszova are currently featured.
Some of the pieces were bound tightly by thin bands, the plaster forms bulging around the edges. In other cases, those same bands were cradling the sculptures, holding together delicate pieces that otherwise might have collapsed.
Friends, we all have ties that bind us in our lives, and we offer them to others as well.
In a world that sometimes feels caged,
may all of our constraints be cradles.
