From the book, "ANGELS" Guardians From Heaven & Their Habitats by Marina Petro

When I completed this painting, I realized it was the angelic 'vision' I had when I was 16 years old, while walking through Central Park, in NYC very late one night with a friend. As we were walking, something made me turn around and I saw this image floating very quickly toward me...her arm, moving in a chastising gesture, directed at me. I got so scared...  started to run...  out of the park and went home where I should have been in the first place. I'm sure she was protecting me...

Quotation that goes with this image from the book:

"God speaks to each of us as he makes us
 then walks with us silently out of the night.

These are the words we dimly hear:
You, sent out beyond your recall, to go the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you:
beauty and terror.
Just keep going.

No feeling is final.

Don't let yourself lose me.
Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness.
Give me your hand."

~Ranier Maria Rilke
