End of Summer – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Christie Pits Park – Toronto

My Labyrinth in the Wading Pool in Christie Pits Park will no longer be filled with water this season.

This past weekend,

The Water Pump was shut off officially for this year.

The Wading Pool Labyrinth is now a full time Labyrinth until next Summer.

I usually visit it before and after Wading Pool Season to see what needs to be repainted.

This year,

I visited it once in late July and painted the broken arcs that had white caulking cement pasted over them.

Hopefully I will visit it once more before winter proper arrives to repaint whatever needs refreshing.

The Larger Idea is to paint over my decade-plus old existing Labyrinth design.

I could then paint an entirely NEW Labyrinth Design.

Maybe.

JAMDEMIC – “2v2 Open Styles Battle” – Trinity-Bellwoods Park Labyrinth Walk – Downtown Toronto

Just like a scene from a movie, a group of Toronto teenagers were having a hip hop dance party in the weekend night. They took turn to show off their talent for dance, no TV show jury, no commercial tickets, everyone was a star on the center stage, and everyone gave their admiration and encouragement to each other. #hiphopdance #teenagerlife #subculture #danceinthepark #partyinthepark #trinitybellwoods #pandemic2020 #torontophotographer #torontoartist #torontodailylife #the6ix #ilovecanada #cityscene #citygram #modernlife #streetsoftoronto #streetscenario #dailyphilosphy #streetstyle #lifestyle #streetfashion #streetstory #streetart #natureandhuman #meaningfulphoto #humanbeauty #metaphor #mythoughts #lifeitself #nightisyoung

It appears the outline of a Heart I placed at the entrance to my latest Labyrinth painted in Grange Park has been chalked into a smiling face with horns . . .

“No distractions this morning, just slow quiet steps” – High Park Labyrinth – Toronto

“High Park haiku number 88.

Do you know the difference between a Labyrinth and a maze?

A Labyrinth has no tricks or dead ends.

There’s just one path,

And the purpose is simply to walk it.

It takes me about 11 minutes to amble through this Labyrinth.

I like to walk in silence, or listen to soft music, or pray…

Honestly this must be the only place in the park I can walk for 11 minutes without distractions.”
