“It’s amazing I’m in this maze with you. I just can’t crack your code.” – Chalk Labyrinth – Granville Street Intersection – Downtown Vancouver

Friday night, I invested the better part of an hour chalking an entire Labyrinth in one of the Entertainment District’s car-free intersections on Granville Street.

Curious to see how much of it survived the day’s vehicle traffic, I returned Saturday night after the street was again closed off to cars and open for people.

Finding my previous night’s faint chalk outline had survived in varying degrees, the Labyrinth remained walkable.

I went for a test walk, and in doing so, a young boy with his mom observing, also began walking it.

A pleasant conversation followed and the young boy and his mom thanked me.

That was enough to confirm what I was going to do anyway, re-chalk the outline of the faded Labyrinth.

I decided to leave the aglets without re-chalked hearts at each of the turns.

I only redrew Hearts at the entrance and the centre this time. A rare decision on my part.

A safe estimate would be that hundreds of people walked, ran, laughed, and made this Labyrinth a part of their party night along Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver.

Including this young Lady, Karen, who stood out for me, as I saw her truly engage and explore and invest much time walking the Labyrinth.

Unexpectedly, found her instagram post, and here it is…

“Lovers in a Labyrinth” – Vancouver Art Gallery – Robson Square Labyrinth – Downtown Vancouver

My recent repainting of two of the green arcs to a bright red, to complement the repainting of the yellows, as seen in this image really makes all the colours pop!

All three primary colours, plus green for the outside boundary, looking good!

I am grateful.

“Street view” – Robson Square Labyrinth – Downtown Vancouver

Heart to Heart.

From this perspective, yesterday’s re-painting of the entrance heart red and the concentric inner arcs yellow all seem worthwhile . . .

Jean-Michel Logan – Chalk Labyrinth – North East False Creek Seawall – Vancouver

I re-chalked this specific Labyrinth a number of times now, and it’s remained visible and walkable for weeks!

Visited it again today and though the colours have faded, the outline is intact.

This image captures the moment well.

I might re-chalk it.

Or await the rain then re-do it altogether with more exacting measurements.

“I went for a walk today and came across this Labyrinth. It is still a work in progress but what a delight to find this in a big city.” – Spyglass Place Labyrinth – Vancouver

…And this would be my cue to stop procrastinating and return to my Spyglass Place Labyrinth for a major Maintenance visit!

“To be honest, she’s an alien, don’t tell anyone though….” – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver Public Labyrinth

When I first placed a medium sized dinosaur egg in the middle of the centre of what would become the Vancouver Public Labyrinth, it was not large enough to stand nor sit on.

Far from it.

Then one day I returned for a maintenance visit and of all the stones, that was the only one which was missing.

I re-placed the disappeared centre stone with a much larger, heavier stone. Not just a dinosaur egg but a really big stone.

Some days later, I found yet another large rock during low tide in False Creek and placed it beside the first re-placement stone.

Since then, I have randomly seen people stand upon those two rocks once they reach the centre.

This is the first instance of seeing someone sitting on them.

Perhaps reaching the centre of the Vancouver Public Labyrinth then sitting and watching the setting set is a thing . . .
