Kissing the Earth

TLS 365 Experience #74
May 13, 2017

I much appreciate the quote by Thich Nhat Han, “Walk as if your footsteps kiss the Earth”.

I offered an experience of the labyrinth to a group of young children.

They wanted to play, run and feel the call of their natural youth and it seemed a shame to interrupt this wild and wonderful moment. So instead of subjecting them to conformity, I had them run around the labyrinth then through it in a variety of ways adding yelps of joy and calls of glorious freedoms. They really enjoyed this and when they had their fill of frolic and fun, I pretended with them playfully about the many ways we might walk the labyrinth. As their attentiveness grew I asked them to consider how they might feel as if the Earth had kissed every footstep they made.

The interaction and display on the labyrinth was priceless and uplifting… without a camera, I had only my heart to capture the moment.
