For almost the first time this summer it has been a very warm day, although here there is still quite a strong wind - in some ways a welcome one.
It was our monthly 'Strugglers' meeting this morning. We meet in the local Quaker Meeting House - sometimes as many as nine of us but this morning only five. The idea is to have silence for a while and then to discuss anything we wish to air to one another - any problem we have which needs a chat, anything which is troubling us in any way.
This morning W talked about Labyrinths. She brought several hand-out sheets and first of all we tried to draw one - easier said than done but we all mastered it in the end. Then we tried making one in twos - we made it on table tops using wool. I took quite a while with V to construct it - W took a photo on her i phone and I have put it into my pictures, but it won't transfer to show you for some reason. Labyrinths are fascinating things and go back into antiquity - I intend to read up on them when I have a chance.
As it is, my reading at the moment has to concentrate on my Book Group book for next session on the first Monday in the month. It is a collection of essays and in order to finish it in time I really need to read and think about one essay a day. I have read the first one today and it is proving fascinating reading.
