B…R…A…C…I…N…G! The past two days I have walked both the 1080 Laughing Labyrinth
and the Prairie Labyrinth at the Indian Creek Nature Center. A world of difference! Grey to sunny. North wind to southwest breeze. Tentative footsteps to confident strides. Too bright – even in the grey light – to just right in the sunlight!
The Prairie Labyrinth in winter is wind swept, sunny, and contributes to a pilgrim’s alertness. Deer on the south hillside. Eagle overhead. Geese on the wing.
Both walks equally valuable. Today’s at the Center was pure delight with winter weeds contrasting against the snow and a mature bald eagle soaring close overhead.
To my delight, other pilgrims have walked both, too. So, winter is a perfect time to walk a labyrinth. Just dress warmly!
