"The Voyage of Saint Brendan" by nakedpastor David Hayward Although the original drawing is no longer available, you can get a very nice print of this drawing HERE
. Today is the feast day of Saint Brendan, of Ireland, known as the voyager who searched the sea for Paradise. I drew this image inspired by my reading of Brendan: A Novel, by Frederick Buechner
. A great read! The symbolism of the image represents our spiritual journeys. They are often treacherous, deeper than we can imagine, unfathomable in its mystery, full of lands and creatures yet to be discovered, embraced, and integrated, as we sail by the wind of the spirit towards our own spiritual independence.
