The temperature was around fifty degrees outside today, which was quite nice for the middle of January and the perfect day for a walk.
I had happened to see a small article in Woman's World magazine about labyrinths. The article claimed that walking in a labyrinth endows you with peace and focus. It can also assist you in thinking more creatively and give you powerful insights--great stuff for a writer! And if you're stressed, it's supposed to alleviate that problem, too. I thought this would be a just the thing for hubby and I to experience. All I had to do was find one with the labyrinth locator at: http://www.labyrinthsociety.com.
It turned out that there was a labyrinth nearby. Unfortunately, a tree had fallen on part of the maze. But hubby and I dutifully followed the pathways as much as we could. Hubby was concerned whether we were doing it right.
We finished it quickly and I really did not feel any more focused or more peaceful. But perhaps I need to walk in another labyrinth--a bigger one.
I looked up more information on labyrinths at http://www.lessons4living.com/labyrinth.htm so that next time I'll have the proper attitude when we walk along the winding paths. We'll do it right!
