labyrinthine bits & pieces
I wanted to share with you some labyrinth resources I've discovered recently. First, two blogs I enjoy reading: the author of Growing Greenpatches shares and illustrates some labyrinthine experiences, while A Letter From Home has ideas for drawing your own.
At the Gratefulness website you can "walk" an online labyrinth, choosing whether to be carried around or walk under your own power.
I've treated myself to two new (to me, anyway) labyrinth apps for my iPad. Finger Labyrinth HD offers 10 different labyrinths to "walk" with a choice of colours for the lines or background. If you want sounds there's a choice of natural sounds or music, or you can use your own music from iTunes. You "walk" with your finger, with or without trailing virtual "clouds of glory". There's a short but useful "how to" section and some history (though it says Ely Cathedral is in London!)
iPause offers six labyrinth designs, new age instrumental music or, again, your own iTunes selection. Watch a marble roll around the labyrinth of its own volition, or move it yourself with your finger.
Please share any labyrinth resources you've found!
