Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

23 02 2013

Pause. Step forward.  You’re about to walk the labyrinth.  There is one path in and the same path out.  It’s very much like life.  Step into the Labyrinth – it offers you time to relax, consider, ponder life.  Walk forward slowly, deliberately.  You’ll end up in the centre and have a grand view of where you’ve been.  There at twists and turns along the way.  Some are sweeping bends while others flip you one way and then another, keeping you far from your goal.  You seem to get closer and closer then double back on yourself and go the other way.  Move forward.  You’ll get there.  There is no short cut.  Keep going.

Labyrinth: St George's Cathedral.  Perth, Western Australia.

Labyrinth: St George’s Cathedral. Perth, Western Australia.

This isn’t the best labyrinth I’ve walked but it was convenient.  When I worked in the city centre, I discovered this at the back of the Anglican Cathedral and walked it one lunchtime.  It is based on the Chartres Cathedral pattern which was constructed in the 13th century.

Labyrinths: forward certainly, but also spiraling inward and seemingly backward. I am planning to build one this year on a forest edge, on grass and marked with rocks. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve walked the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco during a very difficult time in my life. It was amazing.

They’re great aren’t they? Where is yours, it looks so soft. I’ve only ever walked a paved or tiled path.

It is in the back yard of a friend’s art studio. She says that mowing it is a challenge due to the rocks. But it is lovely to walk barefoot.
