"I used to dread the coming of this stark season and the places of loss it often invited me to visit. It took me a long time to learn of the beauty present in its starkness and the secrets in its terrain. Lent is a season that invites us to explore its hollows and, in so doing, to explore our own, to enter the sometimes stark spaces in our souls that we may prefer to avoid. The season challenges us to think of our own lives as vessels, to contemplate the cracks, to rub our fingers over the worn places, to ponder whether we are feeling full or empty, to question what we open ourselves to. It beckons us to ponder what we have shaped--or bent--our lives around, whether the shape of the container of our life offers freedom or confinement, and whether it opens us to the possiblity of new life to which the empty tomb points."
-from Garden of Hollows

Garden of Hollows offers an elegant reflection on the stories and symbols of Lent and Easter. As she contemplates her life in the light--and shadows--of these stories, Jan illumines the holy to be found in the hollows of this sacred season.
