Maze-ing Maze 218


Maze 218

"Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not." Virgil Thomson

Maze 218: This maze is inspired by a friend of mine Mary.  She gave me the title “Here comes the sun” and I created a maze that came to mind.  Thanks Mary!

I chose this quote because of my attempt to conquer my fears.  I run my own door to door flyer business and routinely deliver flyers to apartments.  I have a fear of heights  so this sometimes makes for a crazy day.  Anything 3 stories or higher, old, beat up or all of the above make me very nervous.  But doing apartments makes the job go quicker.  I did 1000 doors today in 4 hours compared to a 600 homes in 6 hours and quit average.

Anyway, there is one building that is 5 stories tall and I did the entire complex 500 units except the 5th.  I just can’t seem to go up those steps.  The wind is blowing hard and the complex has a pond the size of two and half football fields  in the middle so I think that makes it look even higher.  I plan to go back their everyday until I do it.

But my goal is to put that building to sleep and out of my mind once and for all! Or until a client wants me to do that area again.

  1. Wow, this is a really interesting site… I’ve never seen mazes like this. They’re simultaneously beautiful and challenging. Really cool stuff!

  2. I love the wonkey buildings in the background, love the maze as a whole, and love the quote!

    Fight those fears, you can do it!

  3. nice

  4. You are much more afraid of heights than even I. I believe you can do anything!! You will conquer this also.

  5. I love that maze – it’s just beautiful. And as for your ‘three times’ rule, I also live by that. I can’t say I’ve conquered any fears, but after 3 spinning classes I did discover that I quite liked them. And after 3 attempts to learn to knit I have discovered that I can knit a pretty fab pair of socks.

    Not quite the same, but y’know… each to their own and all that…

    Good luck getting up those stairs!

  6. I just know you are conquering your fear! Soon you’ll tell us that you freely went to that building’s 5th floor and delivered your flyers without a problem! Thanks for sharing the 3 rule!

  7. What a fantastic quote! I’m sure it’s very true too, but I’ll have to test that one…
