High Summer


The energy generated by the summer sun and reflected back through the magnificent flowers and prairie grasses amazes and delights me.  Now is the perfect time to wander the labyrinth and take in the glory and to marvel at changes. Both in the labyrinth and me.  Plants that last year barely hung on are vibrant.  Some the need the time to develop roots now spring forth with abundance.  Others, are still very frail but appear none-the-less.  Hope. The projects that are before me and in which I am deeply immersed sometimes swirl in confusion. At other times, like Thursday, when I just blew all the barriers away with conviction, they coalesce. Feels good.  KPACE teaching for Kirkwood Community College and the honor of working with the adult students.  Unity Center labyrinth talk.  Indian  Creek Nature Center early morning labyrinth walk.  The fall programs at the Nature Center – to reprise my role with Sandi Ohlen, Veriditas Trained Facilitator (and I will be one, too, soon!) and work closely with Sharon Norlander,  Shari Stevens, Kristi Cooper, and Tracy McPartland as lead facilitators as well as several healing energy guides – is exciting.  And, AARP Smart Driving Program.  Lots of details, but elements are coming together well.  And, time for another “girl together” and walking the labyrinth.  High summer in Iowa.
