“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2014 Lenten Labyrinth Walks, Private Labyrinth in South Charlotte NC (31/40):
Absolutely perfect day.
Yesterday I sent a text to the owner of this private labyrinth in South Charlotte, and she responded that today was a good day for me to walk.
As I entered, I realized how perfect this good day was.
The water was flowing in Cathy’s fountain and the birds were chirping. The sun streamed across her lawn, and the trees formed shadows on the labyrinth. Although the grass was still damp, I was able to walk barefoot. The back side of the labyrinth is filling in with moss. That felt wonderful to my tender feet.
This lovely bench has this “Be aware of the contact between Feet and the earth. Walk as if you are Kissing the earth with your Feet.”
After I walked, I measured. The radius is 20 of my feet, radius of the center is 4 and the width of the path is one. It looks like the boundaries are about 4 inches. The stones are really larger than 2 inches in diameter; they are smooth river rocks.
Definitely one of my favorite labyrinths.
And it was a perfect day to walk.
