TIME CHANGE SUNDAY MORNING, your body will feel like 10am but it will be 11am when we start. Except in it’s neighborhood, Grass Lake is a little know sanctuary. Its off Kaiser road on Olympia’s Westside. This is marsh land and so full of birds and many plant species who knows what will be in store for us. There is no shore to Grass Lake but we will see water at adjoining Lake Louise. This is a short hike not quite a mile and half will give us many opportunities to stop and take in the green world around us. The parking lot is very small so you may want to carpool or find a side street to park on. As always we will meet at 11am across the field from the parking area.
Every grief hike begins with an opening circle, an acknowledgement of who is here and who we are carrying in our hearts. Then we walk in silence for 10 minutes. Then the group morphs and changes, small groupings or solitary walkers. Conversations can be deep or light, mixing the here and now with our shut away places. And are times of walking with another in silence. We know each of us is somewhere in their grief journey and all are welcome. We end with a closing circle.
