haiku my heart ~ Marking Time

Shadows, standing long,
moving time throughout the day…
My heart rooted, here…


This beautiful seven-circuit Santa Rosa Labyrinth was completed in the Fall of 2010. Because of a tight budget, we used weed cloth covered in bark and Noyo River stone to delinate the lines of this design at the edge of Knox Presbyterian Church's community garden that feeds many families and people in our city of Santa Rosa, California.

My dear friend Michael Mugridge of Burbank Rentals saw how over time the labyrinth was needing more care. Bark breaks down into earth and weeds sprout from the top layer.

He has taken over stewardship of this labyrinth and hired the services of Cisco & F.B.Landscape to replace the bark with decomposed granite. There is stlll much more work to be done, but these photos will show you some of the progress made so far. Soon, the children from the church's school and daycare will be able to run splinter free in this labyrinth... and a solid path will emerge for the adults who go to enjoy this lovely space...
