“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2015 Labyrinth Walks, Davidson College Labyrinth and Peace Garden/Hobart Park:
After delightful breakfast and Target run with Molly, I ventured over to the college’s labyrinth.
I was struck by what a perfect day it was. It is January 24, bright and sunny, and 45°. You could not ask for a more perfect winter day.
As I drove up near the labyrinth, I noticed the big construction crane in front of me. This crane is needed for the college’s new learning community. The first phase will incorporate a new expanded science building.
As I walked down to the labyrinth, I noticed two students sitting on the bench at the side. As I approached, I asked them if they had ever walked the labyrinth. They didn’t know that it was something you could walk.
I introduced myself and gave the students a brief history lesson. They had no idea what a labyrinth was.
It’s a really lovely location, but it amazed me that they never took the time to read the information board.
I probably bored them with too much information, but I really enjoyed telling the story of the labyrinth and its history.
Glorious day. And a great day to be a Wildcat.
