It's been a little over 24 hours

It's been a little over 24 hours since Happy/L. A. Hyder and I have been here in Auburn. Anita Posey-Lowe our host has been so welcoming and kind. The land where she lives is beautiful. Not so much unlike the land that I live on.
Lots of trees, mostly pine, madrone and oak.

We walked the land and found several spots that felt right for the piece and chose a beautiful grandmother oak that sits on the South Eastern corner of the property.

The actual shape of the labyrinth that we are designing came about by thinking about traditional labyrinths and then we followed the shape of the land.

Like most pine forests there is a deep layer of needles that blanket the surface of the ground. I am enjoying the feeling of softness under my feet as I walk about. We used a rake to move the surface and placed and pine cones to delineate the path. Pretty cool.

Now we have something to work with today we bless the space and prep for our workshop "Gathering and Grounding" this afternoon.
