Abstract:

When Susan Neville enrolls in an icon-painting in the cellar of an Indianapolis monastery, she begins a journey where saints are fabricated of mineral and wood, yolk and blood, earth and time. The process is tedious, and she begins to make mistakes, to become impatient; she doesn't feel ready for the challenge. To prepare herself, she makes a vow to write during the 40 days of Lent. What emerges is a journal, a meditation, a series of confessions we are invited to listen to as well follow her sometimes painful attempts to reveal the truth and discover the mystery of her existence.
