Normally I post on Sundays, but this one deserved to be published a day earlier, in honor of World Labyrinth Day TODAY. It starts at 1pm no matter what timezone you’re in, creating a rolling wave of contemplative unity across the globe.
I’ll be walking a labyrinth; I hope you’ll join me, even if it’s just by tracing your fingertip along a downloadable version. xox M
you will stride with purpose,
pressing forward, ever forward,
each footfall divining answers to
you will loiter to pick up the tiniest twig
convinced most certainly
it is impeding your progress
or you will stop altogether,
enchanted by the play of light
that dances at your feet.
On this odyssey, you will do well
to remember: shortcuts do not exist, and
the center holds Forever
even when your path has turned
to obscure it;
you will share the labyrinth
first ahead, then behind, yet
neither matters, for this realm
brooks no competition;
time’s way will bend
into illusions of distance, parting you
from loved ones,
then narrowing to instant reunion;
and finally, just when you think
this is endless, it will end
right where it all began—
Thank you, dear Rocket!! How did your event go today??
I really like labyrinths too. The word itself is cool looking. And that movie starring Bowie and his package!
🎶 You remind me of a babe!
