I took a photograph of this lichen, likening it to a labyrinth.
I have walked the labyrinth at Omega, and a larger one made by peacekeepers at a monastery, years ago as the name of the place escapes me now. But what doesn’t escape me was the feeling of inner peace I gained from the experience. I kicked my shoes off and let my bare feet connect me with the Earth.
The people who were with me the first time cut short my pleasure in the experience by their own reluctance to engage in the experience.
The people who were with me the second time shared my vision of connecting deeply with the divine. Soul bare, as we bared our feet.
Creator, bless us all with those things that bring us face to face with our soul. Bare.
