Swaddled in Snow

Swaddled in snow

The storm reduced visibility and stopped time.

The Laughing Labyrinth and all of Sand Ridge are swaddled in snow.  Windows all around clogged with snow.  Door jambs tucked in with snow.  And it seems like the snow stopped the whole day.  I’m in a time lapse and while I think the time is one thing, it is really another.  So, I drift and feel confused, but settled. That makes no sense at all.

That is how I feel, that things make little sense.  Watching “What the Bleep Do We Know?” I realized I have often thought about some of the premises put forth.  And, so much is mind boggling!  The images of a brain in action being like a thunder storm and the lightning flashing in the clouds is what I often see in Reiki.  Colors, motion, flashes all over and in different places.

Connecting to higher self, learning about chakras and protecting self by closing the chakras (not blocking).  All intriguing.  Confirming conversation with LP who has such insightful remarks said with compassion. Nature Center Board meeting and moving forward into a new era with optimism and faith. Shared thoughts with NL.

considering its status

Insulated against the cold.

As Tracy says, “It’s all good.”  But, puzzling, too.  Sort of like this mourning dove – wondering about its status being here in the cold and snow. Why not south?

And, the labyrinth waits – for fresh footsteps, for me to feel the foot is OK to walk on uneven ground again. Not pleased to be reprising this role of wearing the boot again. So, I stand in the upstairs window and trace it in my mind. Time an odd convention.
