3.6.20 … more a puzzling maze than a contemplative walk …

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2020 Lenten Labyrinth Walks (11/40), 2020 Labyrinth Walks, 2020 Lenten Lists, The Grove Church-Charlotte NC:

I discovered a new labyrinth, and I was excited. So I drove and found the church, but I couldn’t find the labyrinth. So I asked in the kitchen where they were preparing friendship trays. And the man pointed to a large field, a very overgrown field, and said, “Well, it’s kind of overgrown out there because of all the rain, but the start is by two red stakes.”

So now it was found, and I was determined to make it work. And the red stakes were kind of fun, whimsical. I had planned to wear my new yellow flats from Morocco, but …

The labyrinth was an oversized classic Chartres design, very large. It had monkey grass boundaries and weed paths. Because it was flooded and not maintained, I basically had to guess the pattern. Definitely, I walked the weeds. But I loved the fact that they have installed it. I want to figure out a way to support this Labyrinth …

As I said yesterday, I’m amazed that no matter how many times I walk the path, I still don’t know it in my heart. So today, I had to pull up the design.

But I found myself enjoying the challenge, more a puzzling maze than a contemplative walk.

3.6.20

Today’s list:

Favorite book adaptations

1. Pride and Prejudice … 1995 BBC is a favorite
