The chimes were clanging when I got out of the car.  I immediately walked under the chimes and found a name.  Today  “Katie Stout” … I will say a prayer for her family as I walk.

Folder in box: source of my meditation …
First thing I noticed was that my shoes are the same color as the decaying pollen!

I had two women sharing the labyrinth with me.  One was sitting on the bench at the side.  She was reading.  She did  not look up, so I left her to her studies.

The second entered the Sacred Garden after I stated my walk.  She was a trim woman and she walked quickly, so I was planning to let her pass.    I knew she would catch up with me, but actually she did not until the center.  I said  hello and she was friendly, an artist and a trained facilitator. She trained in Chartres.  I was jealous.

We talked about walking labyrinths and she hit on these points:
A labyrinth is a holder  of “accumulated prayers”
It has collective energy.
It can give us access to our spiritual ancestors and can help to verbalize thoughts and form action plans.  She specifically mentioned her relationship with her mother  and the healing outcome from walking the labyrinth.  I agreed to the extent that I am able to have conversations with my mom.
She concluded  our conversation: “Nothing is an accident.”
I tend to agree.
