A surprising labyrinth

Each time I take a little trip
I look at the labyrinth locator online
and find out where I can find one to walk.
I also think they are very pretty.
to find one near you.

I found one at a spirituality center in the Tx. hill country.
 I had to go beyond the second building
to the prayer path and take the right fork.
I walked and walked through the wildness of the land,
and sometimes I would come across a place to pause.

I kept walking the winding path
that was lined with local limestone rocks,
seeing lilttle surprises now and then.

This little statue was just one of many surprises.

This 8 ft. tall wooden Fruit of the Spirit plaque was another surprise.

Then about 250-300 yards in...
the path opened up to a clearing and there it was....
I had arrived at the labyrinth.
It was an eleven- circuit labyrinth —
a Texas vernacular reinterpretation of the well-known design at Chartres.
I was so pleased and surprised.

Here I am at the center of the labyrinth.
So, find a labyrinth.
You may be surprised too.

Savor the Day!

I love walking labyrinths. As a matter of fact, I built one in my yard. I only had room for a 7 circuit but made it as interesting as possible.

The labyrinth you found was magical. I love the idea that you had all those very spiritual items along the way that lead you to the beautiful walk.

Taking the time to walk in silence will calm the ragged nerves in anyone. Have a great weekend! Peace, Mary Helen
