Hidden Treasures

I loved treasure hunts as a kid, and reveled in any story that involved secret passages or hidden clues.  I still eat that stuff up.  One of the things I enjoy so much at Kripalu is exploring the grounds, finding shrines and the gifts other visitors have left behind.  My favorite is a shrine featuring Ganesha, in the woods behind the main building.  The scattered offerings provide a glimpse of others whom have come and gone.

The spring is so beautiful at Kripalu, all green and growing.  This year's exploration yielded a terra cotta head hidden in the grass and a huge field of Queen Anne's lace.  I spent much of my hiking in the shady areas, to avoid the heat.  I ventured out for my annual trip around the labyrinth, but it was too hot to linger long at its center.
