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:
