My name is Susan J. Sorensen. I live in north-central SK in the winter and spring. Soon I will travel to my island home in PEI for the summer and fall. I have always been fascinated by edges, horizons and the subtle movements of earth and spirit.
“from the hinterland” will contain musings on these rhythms – in word and in image.
I am delighted to be sharing and engaging with the Jubilee community in this way.

Waitingsoft spring breezes sing hope winter drops a dusting of late snow melts in the lengthening day
the fragrance of waiting is on the windthe earth and me begin to stir with new life eager for the effort of change
I am here in the heart of Godwandering and restless shouldn’t something be happening shouldn’t I be having an extraordinary experience I’d take a ‘warming of heart’ or an image ‘strange and beautiful’
but oh no, I get ordinaryI know this is my crusty character at work . . and play leaning over the fence wistfully, wishing for other than this moment
I should be Doing something!I am Being and it is enough Rest, this time is for rest here in the heart of God Filled with quiet gratitude Joy even
I am so loved
