a reminder for spiritual directors

Acree, GA

I saw this line by Simone Weil in a library recently (written in a farewell letter to her spiritual director) and I wanted to remember it:

As to the spiritual direction of my soul, I think that God himself has taken it in hand from the start and still looks after it.

I also wanted to remember seeing the razorwire along the top of a fence, with a fine ivy (perhaps a variety of Morning Glory?) climbing up to it. In places, the ivy had wrapped around the razorwire so completely that the leaves and small purple flowers were all that could be seen.
