Bigger on the inside

Fans of the tardis already know that it is bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside; but it’s not the only thing that is built that way.

Life. Way more gets packed into it than anyone would believe.

Labyrinths. Compacted pathways that cover miles (or portions of them) while taking up a corner of a garden, a segment of a transept; it always seems to take forever to reach the centre, but the journey is easy; straightforward in a roundabout way.

Mirror mazes are the opposite; smaller than they look; tricky and mean.

Retreats. Mine lasted from about eight in the morning, when everyone left, till about three in the afternoon, when they started coming home and woke me from an apparently much-needed nap. Short, but filled with prayer, a pilgrimage, fasting, breaking fast and even a nap thrown in for good measure.

Also, a labyrinth.

It’s bigger on the inside, and it also features the shapes of bow ties (which are cool) and a central star shape. Suitable for religious or secular meditation, may it transport you through space and time and always return, in the end, to the exact present, necessary moment.
