Normally my life is work, the cats and home but this month was a very social one for me. I have neglected this blog but now I do have things to post from being so busy.
I went to visit a friend in Morganton - about an hour away in the foothills. Deb took me to a lovely labyrinth at the Grace Episcopal Church. It is a 15 circuit one done in brick and slate - very unusual and easy to walk.
I am a labyrinth freak and find them in all sorts of places. This one was a new one for me and I enjoyed it. Some have very strong energy and others are more subtle. I felt light hearted and carefree walking this one - perhaps because the minister's dogs were nearby. To locate any labyrinths near you check this link out.
It sits behind a historic church built in 1845 with a fascinating cemetery on the church ground like they used to do back then.
I always notice what animals are around when I walk a labyrinth and on this day dogs abounded. From the beagle next door who howled the whole time to the minister's three dogs out for a walk. Dogs represent loyalty, communication, companionship and even a bridge between this life and the next. Very appropiate being by this cemetery. For more insight into dogs as totems - try this link.
