Lilias Trotter, art protégé of John Ruskin then Christian worker in Algeria, was nearly “lost to history” until the early 1990s when biographer Miriam Huffman Rockness unearthed Trotter’s page-a-day diaries and travel journals. On those pages, she’d penned and painted her life—mundane alongside memorable moments. Serendipitous sightings—she called them “beholdings.”
Now it’s your turn. In these pages, adorned with Trotter’s art and inspirational snippets, you’re invited to write, sketch, or draw remembrances, experiences, hopes, and prayers. Your regrets, intentions, celebrations. Even your unexpected beholdings.
