Statement:  How the Earth Holds You is a response I received when listening to the Holy in my journal writing while on silent retreat out in the desert.  I was all hot and bothered with my own self-judgment over a mistake I’d made, when I paused to ask God how I might receive the situation instead.  God invited me to notice the difference between the welcome and quiet of the desert, “How the Earth holds you,” compared to “How you hold yourself in judgment.”  Wow.  I immediately felt the power of the contrast.  How the Earth Holds You was my first attempt to illustrate being held.  Earth Holds You was another design on this theme, in fabric.
