[Vancouver’s Oasis] – Drone Photo – Habitat Island – Vancouver Public Labyrinth

To my knowledge,

this is the first aerial drone image of my Vancouver Public Labyrinth.

Grateful to Jeremy Lee in Vancouver for sharing his drone image on Instagram.

His intention was to capture Habitat Island,

My Stone Labyrinth being in view was a bonus.

I rotated the Instagram image 90 degrees to reflect a true east-west orientation.

Incidentally,

The round cement circle you can see in Hinge Park is the location of my Green Masking Tape Labyrinth !

My Hinge Park Labyrinth has since become a Ghost Labyrinth with barely a walkable masking tape outline remaining at present.

Tall Grass – Vancouver Public Labyrinth – False Creek South – Habitat Island

The south east quadrant of the Vancouver Public Labyrinth dips just enough to allow rainwater to pool into puddle nurturing tall grass . . .

You can still make out the path.

It follows where the grass grew tall around the rocks and stones which outline the Labyrinth . . .

Nature nurturing a Hedge Maze from within my Stone Labyrinth ?

Drone Photograph of David Crombie Park’s Basketball court.

Immediately north of the Basketball court,

You can see my Green & Blue colour painted Labyrinth in the top of the image.

Labyrinths in Islam – Traffic Island Labyrinth – Masjid Qiblatain – Madinah, Saudi Arabia – Tuesday May 31 2011

Today is Day 26 of Ramadan 2020.

This video is from my journey to Madinah, Saudi Arabia in May/June of 2011.

I was walking from my youth hostel to visit Masjid Qiblatain.

Masjid Qiblatain is known for having two Mihrabs, or Prayer Niches.

Originally,

Muslims had faced north west from Madinah towards Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem when praying.

A time came when the Direction of Prayer, the Qibla, was turned south east towards Makkah.

Hence,

The Masjid with Two Qibla.

En route,

A traffic island in the distance somehow caught my curiosity.

Alhumdulillah,

A Triangle Topiary Hedge Labyrinth !

Discovering this was a HUGE moment for me.

Muslims in The Holy City of Madinah were also making Labyrinths !

Afterwards,

I found a a small playground near Masjid Qiblatain.

In that park,

I outlined a simple three lane Classic Labyrinth in the sand and walked it.

Turning north and south and east and west.

Not unlike the Turn in Congregational Prayer Direction from Jerusalem to Makkah in the Masjid I was about to enter and visit.

“My lunch digs. ☀️” – Labyrinth Pier – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver

The paint has faded on the White Pass-Through Labyrinth on Labyrinth Pier Vancouver.

With the Pandemic,

I don’t know when I will return to Vancouver to repaint all the Labyrinths that comprise Labyrinth Pier Vancouver.

Yet,

Hopefully enough of this Labyrinth outline remains for it to still be walkable . . .

“Nomi and I mapped Earlscourt Park 🌳… This has made our daily adventure time a little more adventurous.” – Labyrinth – Earlscourt Park – Toronto

Hand drawn map of Earlscourt Park in Toronto.

This map includes the 16 Lane Labyrinth Steve and I painted there in the Wading Pool during Spring 2016.

Surprised and Grateful to see it mapped this way.

Yay !

Reminds me of my friend Marlena Zuber‘s famous maps of Toronto

It’s overdue that I get around to creating a map of where all the Labyrinths in my “City of Labyrinths” are !

“…I saw this wading pool maze and it made my day.” – Octagon Labyrinth – Sunnyside Boardwalk – Budapest Park – Toronto

Grateful for this photograph.

It shows me two of the Pink lines are already peeling away, revealing the underlying painted Black design outline.

InshAllah,

I should be able to at least repaint these Pink lines asap.
