I love St. Francis. I am not Catholic, but I love the gentleness, lightness of spirit, and service that he is known for. So when I visit the Phoenix area, I go to the Franciscan Renewal Center to soak up the vibes and find some peacefulness in the middle of the desert.
There is a labyrinth there that I like to walk. Being in that flow, I feel I am in water, moving with the waves and tides. In the center of the circle, people often leave a token of their journey.
That's where I found this heart. This time, I didn't leave anything. Instead I took a photograph.
I went to the center and brought my creativity back out with me.
It's a good thing.
