I love this. I recently moved back to rural Iowa after 15+ years in San Francisco, and the "water department" (one guy) in my hometown witches for old water lines when he can't find them on the city's plans. Writing really does feel like a metaphysical act of revealing something we sense, unconsciously, but can't see. Thank you for writing this!

I can't remember where I read this or who said it: writing is like trying to capture a dream - it always seems just on the edge of our consciousness. This is what it feels like for me.

I greatly enjoyed this blog, Grant! You are speaking to not just my writing sensibilities, but to my love of magic and to my calling. Because of my curiosity of where creativity comes from, I completed a masters program in Depth Psychology and Creativity at Pacifica Graduate Institute. The school re-introduced me to Labyrinth Walking, something that I had treated as a past not as a serious part of my invocation. That changed last year and I am now building my practice (and my brand) around the Labyrinth. It has been really interesting to see where topics and people I have met on my journey intersect with my calling. Thank you for this. :D
