But wait: hauling rocks? What have you been doing, Dawn?
It had been a long-time vision to create a labyrinth, but it was on hold because I thought I'd need open clear space until I saw this . . .

Then the gears began to turn and the Earth gnomes shook the dirt off their pointy red hats as I started to Look.
A few days ago, I saw the space, the perfect space ~ open enough to walk, yet including a stump, a few large rocks and a tree or two. Bennie and I began clearing the area one hot afternoon and laid out the Seed pattern for a seven-circuit labyrinth. This labyrinth configuration is a favorite one as it reminds me of a brain and seems a natural design in a wooded setting.
Hauling rocks for two women isn't an easy task, even if it is a labor of love. (I'm lucky to have a Virgo daughter who doesn't mind hard work and getting dirty, especially if it's in service to the land.) So a little at a time has been done in the past week. The progress is quite satisfying. Hopefully, it won't take 37 years to realize the vision.
