“Call signal for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…” – Labyrinth – Augusta Avenue – Kensington Market – Downtown Toronto

Batman has the Bat Signal.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have . . .

My Labyrinth in Kensington Market ?

I did incorporated the Sewer Grate into my Labyrinth’s design, so, Ninja Turtles could have easy entry/egress so,

Sure, why not !

“Love Button” – Labyrinth – Kensington Avenue – Kensington Market – Downtown Toronto

Hearts.

I now place them in the Centre of almost all my Labyrinths.

I add them to turn-arounds at the ends of the Lines which make up the outline of my Labyrinth Designs.

This Heart centre of my pass-through Labyrinth painted on Kensington Avenue during the July 2019 Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market.

Without a Heart somewhere in my designs, my Labyrinths now feel incomplete.

Emotion is absent.

Adding one or more hearts, changes the entire feeling, meaning, and experience of a Labyrinth . . .

Love Button indeed.

“Travel the globe in Kensington Market” – Labyrinths – Augusta Avenue – Downtown Toronto

I’d hoped my painting of the letters spelling “# K E N S I N G T O N M A R K E T” atop Augusta Avenue may serve as a Gateway announcement into Kensington Market neighbourhood outside of Pedestrian Sundays.

Another image suggesting my hope is being realized . . .

“The wading pool was way too enticing to stay away.” – Labyrinth – Earlscourt Park – Toronto

Perhaps the Labyrinth I painted in the Wading Pool had a wee bit something to do with that enticement . . .

Nyah, it was splashing in cold water on a hot day !

“Key to my Heart…” – Labyrinth – Augusta Avenue – Kensington Market – Downtown Toronto

Never occurred to me that from a certain vantage point, my Labyrinths can include a Key Hole design . . .

Inspired to work this Key idea in future Labyrinths and see what happens.

“This weekend was remarkably full of emotions, experiences, and transformations.”– Labyrinths – Augusta Avenue – Pedestrian Sunday – Kensington Market – Toronto

This Turquoise Coloured Labyrinth was the first one of the day that I painted on Augusta Avenue in Kensington Market on Pedestrian Sunday.

This intersection Labyrinth played host as a stage for Street Performers, so it was more stood upon by the Audience than it was walked . . .

This weekend was remarkably full of emotions, experiences, and tranformations. I spent time with my daughter, my lover, and my friends. I had great conversations and magical reunions, encountered both bliss and pain and challenged myself to look deep at my intentions. And then I threw down and danced my energy out for long enough to find my ecstacy in my poi at Cherry Beach. I'm tired. And mostly happy. Tonight I'll dance again at Toronto Ecstatic Dance and set an intention for a change that's coming. Thank you to the beautiful people who shared space with me. Sometimes something normal for one person is extraordinary to another. I never take many photos. Too busy experiencing. #Toronto #Summer #PSKensington #PromiseCherryBeach
