my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?


In this Passover/Easter Season ...

I share a phrase with you associated with the psychoanalyst Carl Jung.

Although it did not originate with him (it is thought to be repeated from an ancient Delphic oracle), he felt the truth of it so strongly that he had it carved over the doorway of his home in Zurich.

The Latin text is: Vocatus atque non vocatus Deus aderit ...

Bidden or unbidden, God is present.

Whether we invoke it or not ... whether life follows our wishes or not ... whether we can understand the outcome or not ... God is here.

Whatever your beliefs, I hope there is comfort in this thought ... and I wish you a joyous holiday.
