Exploring new ground: Labyrinth

Running a new trail, no preconceptions

Following the track, as long as it runs.

Uphill legs are taken without knowing

Desire to explore overriding exertion.

Unexpected surprises of nature –

Cross the path ahead, & sour in the sky.

A labyrinth of trails, for mind and soul –

Prick the senses, revive the body.

Discovered this labyrinth by chance on a new trail today. It reminded me of how uplifting it feels to explore new ground, be surprised by new nature and to run without knowing where the path will lead. I’m going to enjoy discovering Santa Barbara and its surrounding country.

More information on the location of my run today can be read about on ‘UCSB Campus, Lagoon, and Beach‘ and ‘Lagoon Island Labyrinth | Earth Research Institute‘.
