I didn’t think I would but I loved the Labyrinth or at least up to a point. No, I love it completely if only because I can dance in solitude.
I have always dreaded parties and receptions and I think it is because it requires dance. This is the one formality that I never have grown accustomed to. Learning to speak came naturally after that leap of faith but to move one’s body in rhythm is a grace that I do not possess. My great fantasy (actually I have two….the other is to be seen sleeping) is to be told that my dance does not matter and I think in the Labyrinth that such a thing is true for God does not care about my lack of grace as His is sufficient enough. The solemn walk takes on a quality of dance that is more like hiking in quiet forested lands and steep hillsides of the eastern half of home state.
