My friend Gayle invited the teenager and I to go for an appropriately socially distanced walk on Easton’s Karl Stirner Arts Trail.
The Arts Trail has added a new nature trail, some new art, a Qi Gong station, a labyrinth and a chime installation. So that was really fun.
I walked more today than I did in the last two days combined. Maybe three.
We also saw at least seven breeds of dogs so that was a delight. Frolicking puppies of every type.
But it was the best feeling when my daughter and I came upon the labyrinth and I explained the spiritual value of a labyrinth (and it turns out I managed to summarize exactly what the signs said).
It was like I got a redo on the vernal equinox.
So I brought into the labyrinth my recent stress and doubt, asking the universe to guide me.
And I repeated my mantra to the center of the labyrinth— and walked out my hands open to the receiving position ready to get answers. Or guidance.
I feel refreshed.
For Gayle’s take on the adventure:

I’m glad you both came. I really believe that being outside in nature has healing properties.

Oh, Angel, I’m so glad you walked the labyrinth. I’ve been a labyrinth nut for years and didn’t know there was one down there (must check out). The most perfect thing to do at this crazy time.
It’s new. I’ve never intentionally sought out a labyrinth— but it was always one of my favorite parts of columcille. And I love walking them
