I have grown to appreciate Kye Bay on Vancouver Island for the opportunity it offers to connect with nature.
In early April I drew a labyrinth at Kye Bay. I was in the process of photographing it, when a eagle flew by me and landed on a tree behind the labyrinth. The eagle sat perched in the tree while I completed my walk.
Several times I stopped to look at this bird of prey . . . what most caught my attention then and still, was the relationship between the eagle and the two crows sitting on a branch above the eagle. Why two crows and not more? Why were they above the eagle and not below? Were the crows a couple or were they acting together for the benefit of other crows - why??
I also wondered why I often see crows pursuing eagles, yet, they will build a nest next to a tree with a pair of eagles nesting in it.

- walking a labyrinth
- This Blog is for people looking for an outdoor labyrinth to walk in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. These Events are outdoors, on the foreshore of the ocean, so they are weather permitting events. Please check my Blog for Event day confirmation when weather might be an issue. Walking a Labyrinth is like accepting an invitation to pray, meditate, contemplate, dream, celebrate or play; a place to find inspiration, satisfy a curiosity, examine metaphor, mythology or simply, a place to explore liminal space: a 'betwixt and between' place. . . Labyrinths are drawn on the foreshore, betwixt the nearshore and the backshore, between the low and high water marks to present liminal space as a physical location. Labyrinths may also be drawn during liminal time: dusk or dawn and/or solstice or equinox. Victor W Turner has described liminality as "a fructile chaos, a storehouse of possibilities, not a random assemblage but a striving after new forms and structures, a gestation process." My vision is that when you walk a labyrinth on the foreshore, you will access liminal space. For information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
