Explore the season

“In things of beauty, he contemplated the One who is supremely beautiful, and, led by the footprints he found in creatures, he followed the Beloved everywhere.”

ST. BONAVENTURE

seasonal, liturgical living

I’m Kristin Haakenson – an artist, farmer, & mom creating art and resources for seasonal living through the liturgical year.

In life on our farm in the Pacific Northwest, I lean into the agrarian roots & rhythms of the liturgical calendar. My artwork uses flora, fauna, and the heritage traditions of bygone days to reflect on these ancient rhythms of the Church year, and my hope is that these resources would help to enrich your own journeys through the calendar, making the fruits of ancient traditions present in our modern lives.

I am going to my own hearth-stone,
Bosomed in yon green hills alone, —
A secret nook in a pleasant land,
Whose groves the frolic fairies planned;
Where arches green, the livelong day,
Echo the blackbird’s roundelay,
And vulgar feet have never trod
A spot that is sacred to thought and God.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON, “GOOD-BYE”
