Need a calming place?
They say a walk along a labyrinth might just be the cure. I'm not so sure, but if you are really miserable 'any port in a storm' may help. Well, at least for 15 minutes. Seen here is a 5-circuit medieval labyrinth that is a permanent installation on the UNE campus, just off of Stevens Avenue. Parts of Pine Grove and Evergreen cemeteries can be seen in the distance behind the white fence. The spot is nestled under tall pines. The natural pine needles form the pathways of this maze. If meditation is due, large slabs of granite form benches to rest and sooth the spirit and soul. A word of caution, at this point, might be apropos. I've heard tell that people have had to be rescued from complex corn mazes in the Midwest. I don't know how stress relieving getting 'lost' in one of those would be.
That experience might increase my stress level.
"Serenity now; insanity later."
Not a bad mantra for some.
'Keep on the sunnyside'.
