8.21.17 … “Do you know the show you’re about to put on, Mr. Sun?”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Labyrinth Walks, First Baptist Church of Asheville, St. John’s Episcopal Church, Asheville NC, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse:

I am up in Asheville to get a 99.9 % view of the solar eclipse. So, of course I’m walking a labyrinth.

John and I are staying in a special place, the Westervelt Cabin, near Canton NC about 30 minutes southwest of downtown Asheville.

We leave the cabin about 8 am. On 151, the road to Asheville, we see a beautiful sunrise. I ask aloud, “Do you know the show you’re about to put on, Mr. Sun?”

I arrive at First Baptist Church before 8 and the gates are locked. I kill time and when I come back again after 8 AM, the gates are open. I take my “puppy” Albert with me and we have had a a very nice walk on this Chartres replica labyrinth.

Before I head home, John tells me that he noticed that St. John’s Episcopal Church has a labyrinth. He actually notices that, knows what it is and tells me about it! So on the day of the solar eclipse, I get it two walks.

The second labyrinth is a classical, pea-shaped labyrinth. In the center, there are a cross and several trinkets that walkers have left.

All told, it is a perfect solar eclipse double labyrinth walk day.
