Not too long ago I walked a labyrinth. You might have seen one or even walked one before. Maybe you know that a labyrinth is meant as a walking meditation about the journey of life. It's calming, intuitive, peaceful. I walked several in France last month, but the one I did in Portland was part of . . .
I'm glad you're reading this, because it's an important piece. It was written and posted on Facebook last month by my Facebook friend, Petrina Hamm. She's a valiant cancer warrior --you probably have some among your friends--and she is going to tell you what you can do to support them as they . . .
