“Come sail your ships 🛳 around me…” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Eglinton Park – Toronto

Ships hunh?

Hmmm….

Has me wondering how well a remote control toy boat might navigate the Labyrinth in a Wading Pool filled with water?

“이젠 아빠가 퇴근하기만을 기다리는 다니엘 시후. 아빤 이제 캠핑의자를 나무그늘에 놓고 앉아서 지켜본다.” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Eglinton Park – Toronto

Wading Pools double as Public Spaces where Toronto’s Little Ones can safely learn how to ride a bicycle, at their own pace, away from traffic.

Akin to kids learning taking their first steps safely in water, before entering the shallow ends of larger public swimming pools.

Wading Pools where I have painted Labyrinths, like this one in Eglinton Park in Midtown Toronto, become triply valuable…

  • Wading Pool
  • Velodrome for Tricycles
  • Labyrinth

“생애 첫 자전거!!” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Eglinton Park – Toronto

Parents often use Toronto’s Wading Pools as training ground for bike ride training.

The painted lines which define my Wading Pool Labyrinths often become Lanes which kids learn to navigate . . .

“✈️🗼🌊⚾️” – Grange Park Labyrinth – Downtown Toronto

My Blue Labyrinth is still there!

Yay!

My previous Labyrinth was removed in late April.

I expect this too to be removed by The City at some point, yet hopeful I am wrong.

Until then, it will remain a memory opportunity for visitors to Toronto . . .

“The Heart is a Labyrinth.” – Augusta Avenue – Kensington Market – Toronto

Hmmm…

Depending on how much of the existing Painted lines which make up my Heart Labyrinth survives by the August 25 2019 Pedestrian Sunday, I may redesign the Heart into a New Labyrinth.

“Первое утро в Торонто…”– Red Labyrinth – Augusta Avenue – Pedestrian Sunday – Kensington Market – Toronto

This was the final Labyrinth I painted on North Augusta Avenue before the street was re-opened to vehicular traffic this past Pedestrian Sunday Kensington Market.

As I finished chalking, Yvonne Bambrick informed me I had barely 30 minutes to paint the chalk outline of my design, before the cars began rolling through.

I rushed the painting and took every short cut I could to complete at least a single coat of paint atop the chalk outline.

Only one Aglet was transformed into a Heart.

The Heart at the top of the Labyrinth was left with only the outline painted and one long brush roll half-way into the centre of it.

I was shocked, surprised, satisfied with how fast I painted it.

It was walk-able. Which numerous people began to do.

Yet many more people self-organized for group photographs captured atop the Labyrinth.

I’m still basking in the glow, the feeling, the learnings, from this Red Labyrinth.

Something has changed for me.

I can complete painted Labyrinths a LOT faster than I thought.

When Yvonne gave that 30 minute warning, she didn’t dissuade me from beginning to paint, she simply let me factually know I had a deadline.

My mind wanted to blurt out loud, “Challenge Accepted.”

…I kept that to myself.

Humility. The hell with my Hubris.

Result ?

This Red Labyrinth . . .
