The Universe has a way of speaking to us. The clouds cleared yet enough lingered to make interesting patterns that Linda Anneling captured with her camera. Pilgrims came in various frames of mind – joyful, sharing, curious, reflective. But the common thread was one of openness to experiencing the labryinth and lessons they can glean from connecting with the earth and their inner selves. I greeted each, asked them to sign the table cloth, explained the feathers and answered questions they had, then sent them on their way into the labyrinth. How rewarding to see several people using it at the same time. They seemed to get the protocol of simply stepping to the side when meeting a fellow pilgrim moving in a different direction. Even Buddy, the rescue dog, “got it.” He was most interested in exploring all the scents and doing taste tests on a few of them. (Don’t ask.)
The insights that the 25 friends shared as astonishing to me and helped me remember that this project is indeed of value beyond my “recovery and rescue.” I so look forward to people sharing their thoughts and will post as I get them.
I particularly like this picture because each person is so focused on his/her own progress and I can only guess what each is looking at or thinking about. Thank you all and Universe!
