"A real water labyrinth!"
Comstock of Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, celebrated the first day of
summer, 2005, reflecting on the blessing of water, especially the
refreshing qualities enjoyed so much in the summer. The labyrinth
was on the shore of Lake Erie, on the same beach where Carol held
the January Worldwide Circle of Labyrinths.

Sevenhuijsen, Netherlands, made this labyrinth on a Dutch beach

can be a symbol both for transience and finitude.

surrounded with healing water.

tsunami, I worked with the maze to dispel the unquiet and distinctly
crowded feeling that overwhelmed my studio. On a sunny, windy morning
three days after the event, I walked the maze carrying a vulture
feather and my ritual knife. As often happens when I use these tools,
there was a swirling disturbance in the air and the sense of the
roof opening in a flash of light, then all was calm, quiet, and
the days after that I created several pieces of art. On the January
Full Moon, a month after the tsunami, I walked the maze several
times in succession, calling upon the Manta Ray (one of my oldest
spirit guides) and carrying a small forged iron boat. The
story of the Boatman is a description of that very intense journey.
(Using an iron boat, instead of one made from wood or paper, is
not as strange as it sounds. In parts of Indonesia, iron nails
are traditionally left with food and flowers as offerings for the
