Just as the leaves were starting to change, I hosted a retreat morning at Pathways Retreat Center. There was time to walk the labyrinth in its early fall garb -- a few dried grasses and plants, some bright greens and reds, and the textured rock at the center. It's a delight to look back at this brilliantly sunny day on a very wet, gray November afternoon.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
