Kwan Yin

In Week 25 of my quarantine, when “staying at home” and working online feels like this may never end, I visualize the Goddess of Mercy to give me hope and strength, to remind me of compassion and kindness in these times of uncertainty, fear, and anxiety, when so many are still getting sick and dying.

I pray for mercy for all of us, for a solution to our misery, and relief from this devastating pandemic.

This wood carving (c. 1025) resides at The Honolulu Museum of Arts (formerly the Honolulu Academy of Arts), a favorite museum of mine.
