Saturday Snapshot: Labyrinth Lines

Saturday Snapshot is a weekly meme hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books. The 'rules' are:

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

 This week I am sharing a couple of pictures of the temporary labyrinth I created for a New Year's walk, in our local gallery, Gallery Stratford. New Year's is the perfect time to take some contemplative time for yourself and look at the way your life is going. Luckily for me, our local art gallery is very supportive and I was able to hold a walk in the middle of some gorgeous paintings (by Art Green) which were all about looking more deeply and seeing things you might have missed on first glance. The perfect metaphor for our walk! It was very peaceful and a lovely day.

  2. Very cool! Our church has created prayer labyrinths on occasion ... our youth group made one as a gift to the congregation a couple years ago out behind the church in a wooded area on the property ... so restful.

  7. What a lovely idea - I have friends who do occasional labyrinth walks for local churches, with meditation stations using pictures, pebbles, plants etc. It's always very inspiring and renewing, My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/BIJkg

  10. Thanks everyone, for stopping by and commenting. It is a fantastic setting for the labyrinth -- very still and peaceful and the art gives a focus for meditation or response. It's the second one I've done there and I simply love the space. It's so rejuvenating.

  11. The labyrinth creates a contrast to the colorful art pieces on the wall.

    Walk the labyrinth and contemplate about art.

    Very nice.

  14. Simple Images & Jennifer & Louise -- doing this in an art gallery is surprisingly effective. You are right that the art adds to the contemplative feel of the day.

Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you will leave your comments and reflections to let me know what you think!
Sorry everyone, but excessive spamming getting through means I have added back that annoying word verification for, now.
