Blog Share on Walking the Labyrinth

I got a comment from Hillary of Crazy as a Loom and she had the cutest story to tell about Walking the Labyrinth.  I asked her if I could share it here on my blog and I have copied part of her post from this page

Back in 2007I took my two grandsons to Harmony, in Comstock.  It is a wonderful place, acres of wildflowers, and total serenity. And they have a labyrinth. I asked my grandsons, 7 and 10 at the time, to walk it, stay in the paths, and think about what it meant. The oldest one said, "I don't get it." The younger one, after a while, said, "Mimi, I think I know what it means." I said, "Yeah?? What do you think?" He said, " I think it is where you find the center of your heart."
I knew then that I had to build my own labyrinth.
So in 2008, I did just that.

If you click the link above there are pictures of the original Labyrinth and the new and improved Labyrinth she built.  AMAZING.

I looked at all those rocks and I couldn't imagine bending over to place them in perfect arrangement.  Hilary's back must be in a whole lot better shape than mine!!

She also has some pictures of gorgeous weaving she has done.   Click over and visit her if you have time.

By the way, I ended up going the wrong way again today.  I'm going to take that as a sign that I'm in too big a hurry these days and that I need to slow down and follow the path.

  1. The 7 year old is a perceptive boy! Unfortunately, the link to Hilary's page with the photos appears to be broken or incorrect. I'd love to see her labyrinth!

  2. That labyrinth is certainly a labor of love. That seven year old's comment was heart warming. He must be a old soul indeed.

  3. Aww, he had no trouble finding the meaning did he? You have me interested. Think I will have to Google to see if there are any near me.

  4. Thanks for fixing the link! Hilary's labyrinth is wonderful! Yes, it must have taken a lot of work and effort but that too could have been done in a devotional, meditative way.
