There is a light on in the Magdalene Laundries

In the last 2 months, Tony and I have been making journeys to the Magdalene Laundries preparing the dreaming well for Femmina Unbound at the Convent. And every time we visit we see something that seems to be signaling that we are not alone in our wish to heal this site and the spirits of the women and children here. On one visit we discovered beautiful light sculptures inside the laundries themselves as part of an exhibition called Globelight. As we viewed them in silence I felt it was a powerful metaphor that an exhibition bringing light to this place was scheduled right before the workshop. Some powerful symbology here of the spiral, the spider-web and the wooden pyre crowned with a halo.
