Resting Under The Snow


Spring approaches with lengthening days, dripping icicles, and the call of Cardinals.  Nestled in Edwinna’s backyard is evidence of a charming three-circuit labyrinth.  An impressive evergreen anchors one corner of the yard and labyrinth.  Bricks just poking up in some places through the snow hint at the shape and pathway of the labyrinth.  A brilliant red angel marks the way and a cross identifies the center.  The path to and from the labyrinth is well trod because Edwinna feeds the birds and two cats move back and forth between house and evergreen.

To walk again when snow is gone will be a treat.   But, even now, on  a mild late-winter morning, thoughts form and messages rise up on the vapors.  Rest.    Reflect.  Discern.  Generative.  It’s a good thing.
