This morning I sneaked out of the rental house in Morro Bay in order to do some prayer walk-meditation at a labyrinth I had never visited. It is like a treasure hunt, trying to find these sacred spaces.
After one dead end and from directions from a couple women who thought I was more than slightly hopeless, I was nothing short of awed of the space that surrounded me.
I meant to bring my sketch book. I was determinded to do a drawing for Art Every Day Month. I could have spent a lot of time guilting myself for somehow not sliding my sketch book into my bag, but instead I determined I could take photos and sketch later.
The experience was what was more important.
I was being ultimately creative and artistic as well as having a sacred experience which prepared me to continue to have a time with my family that would be memorable and not at all cranky.
(This is so important!) A few more photos:
This has been such a Julie-esque "black" (why do we call it that?) day after Thanksgiving Friday. Creative, artsy, spiritual and feeling absolutely high without any chemical intervention.
Welcome to this perfect day!
