Light… at times, it only shimmers. Like a warm ray peeking through the forest trees, it shimmers. But it’s there. As the golden sun rises, all of its warmth and piercing rays overtake the cold and dark of the forest making visible the dark places and providing energy for life to thrive.
Hildegard von Bingen was a beacon of light in the darkness. Her life and legacy have not only influenced the arts, but science, philosophy, and religion.
