Seems we’re all going around in circles these days. Or caught in a maze of emotions. Or we feel like we’re in a labyrinth, with no way back to normal.
So it was fitting that last week’s Photo Challenge showed the labyrinth on the front lawn of Saugatuck Congregational Church. It’s actually a calming spot, a place to wander, de-stress and focus.
Saugatuck’s labyrinth spans 50 feet, lined with over 1,500 bricks. Its 7 rings are designed to “traverse the material world through to the realm of higher consciousness.” Renowned dowser Marty Cain helped determine the optimal location of the rings, spine and entrance.
The labyrinth was part of church member and then-Staples High School student Liam Borner’s Eagle Scout project. He got help from various parishioners, and pastor Alison Patton. Installation was done by members and friends of the church. Click here for last week’s photo; click here for more info on the labyrinth.
Morley Boyd, Iain Bruce, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Susan Iseman, Lois Himes and Katherine Ross all knew exactly where Lee Scharfstein’s photo was — and what it showed.
How about this week’s Photo Challenge? If you know where in Westport you’d find it, click “Comments” below.
I think it’s looking down from either the plaza by Saugatuck Sweets (towards the riverside sidewalk below) or from the vantage point of the area above the shopping. plaza across the street from Saugatuck Sweets (adjacent to where Garelick used to be).
Fred is correct! It’s the view looking down at the riverside sidewalk from the plaza between Saugatuck Sweets and The Whelk. Well done!
