Approaching Solstice

Just past full moon

Glow through clouds

After the guided meditation honoring this time of rest, dormancy and death/shedding/transition, I walked the 1080 Laughing Labyrinth on December’s World Peace Meditation Night.  Even through a thickening cloud cover, the moon reflected enough of the sun’s energy that its glow cast shadows.  The labyrinth was easy to walk in the dark because of the moon glow and because the path that I have shoveled and where the sun has melted the snow, gave great contrast to the piles of gleaming white snow on the sides.  I always enjoy the labyrinth at night and in late autumn (well, it’s winter whether officially or not!) is particularly pleasing with crisp air, quiet, and shadows.

Here’s to Noelle Holmes and her meditations connecting us to winter and ourselves.
