Day 209 July 28
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return
South of Edmonton in the Province of Alberta, Canada, the Silver Springs Botanical Gardens appreciates a variety of ways to showcase the natural flora of the area. Together there are 14 different types of gardens in the Botanical Park and the beautiful representation of purple flora and artistic brick make for a visual appreciation to accompany any walk.
The children in this photo remind us to step lively in our explorations and discoveries and in doing so we might find a little of the magic that children naturally do. The labyrinth does not have to have visual aesthetics to be pleasing, though when we can explore a bit about each, we become a little more intrigued in what all is provided. The unknown is always a walk of wonder, though sometimes a little exploration gives us meaning in the purpose of the known. Realizing that the labyrinth design can make such artistic contribution that it shows up in such interesting ways, is an artists exploration of the labyrinth too. While a walk is more than design, a design is often found in the walk.
On this 209th day…
Explore the fascinating explorations you have made with the labyrinth and what designs you have created in your walks or talks in sharing.
Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit. Lets see if we can make a labyrinth pathway out of the month of travels based on the locations offered. We began in Portland, Oregon…. Click here to watch the progress grow this month!
Our exploration this month is to Walk in reflection of our direction. We traveled from America’s west coast to Australia, Asia and the Swedish Lapland’s and found our centered point in Austria by the month’s end. July will complete our world walk and return us to American shores. It’s been a wild and wooly time of exploration in the world to expand our cultural and connective perspective of the labyrinths and their purposes worldwide. This is indeed the global course in Labyrinthing with world wondering discovered in our wandering.
This month, we return from our center in Austria and traverse the world.
- Go Global….Explore the World
Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts. Note how these designs are outside the box of traditional design and how they might take us outside the design we’ve been living in. They can be quite diverse or small simple adjustments that make it different too. From Austria to Portland… the second half begins!
- Grow Local…. Bring the World to you
Let your walks, programs, designs, creations and simple enthusiasm be inspired by what the world offers us with fresh ways to create new experiences in the 30 days of this month. If it is doing something different each day, walking a new labyrinth, designing, researching or some new way to share, do it then share it with us! By becoming acquainted with the unique labyrinths of the world, we can be inspired as to why they are different, how they serve and what they offer on the same path we walk on in our home or local community area. What will you have created by the end of our month?
