The Road Less Traveled

Today’s Daily Post photo challenge was to take a picture of a street.  I spent the day at the Cenacle Center in Houston and as I wandered the property looking for an idea I came across a Labyrinth.  Are you familiar?

Some information from the internet:

Historically, a labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness.  It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools. Read more.

To walk the labyrinth is to make a pilgrimage, to discover something about ourselves and God. The destination is not important; the journey is! Labyrinths are not magic, though they are full of mystery, and they offer an avenue for participation in and the experience of many different levels of the mystery of life. Read more.

So…what a fun street /road/journey to photo today.  And you know I walked it…and I will again tomorrow.  I used it to pray today…feeling a little silly while walking in a circle but compelled to follow it through.

What journey are you today?  What road do you need to travel?  I’d love to hear from you!
