Masters of the Maze

Do you like finding the one correct path through a maze? Some can be quite difficult . . .



. . . while others are, admittedly, much easier.



And some just require a bit of creative thinking . . . .

now this may sound weird, but I do the the maze thing backwards; I start at the finish and work my way back.

I like the maze for the chain lock.

Bob Slatten said...

That maze chain lock would be the death of me!

Marie Smith said...

Lol. A-mazing!

I am with that 6 year old!

Love the maze chain lock! Very cool! I've always loved mazes. Used to do the paper puzzles in pen! Have an a-amazing day! :o)

Leeanna Henderson said...

That little girl has the right idea. Eliminate the stress too. I love playing with mazes.

Rosemary said...

As a child I was excited by gardens with hedge mazes that I could explore - sometimes they took ages to find the way back out again.

Linda deV said...

I'm a fan. Love the door lock.

Joanne Noragon said...

A great collection. I tend to work them backwards, too, but it's the same as frontwards--a maze. I didn't get through the lock. I've lost concentration this last year.

Hello Debra, I too love that lock maze! A while ago I did a post on an odd Chinese antique with built-in maze (the maze part is at the end, but the object itself is quite unusual).

Regine Karpel said...

Great.

Elsie Amata said...

That's it. I'd be stuck in that room forever. They'd find a skeleton. Or me in a corner crying and babbling nonsense. That's if they could get in the room.

Sheer brilliance. I love those kids. And I’d hate to have to ge out that door if there were a fire!

Crystal Collier said...

LOL! I had a good laugh. Thanks for that. Sometimes we just have to color outside the lines and take what comes.

Rain said...

OMG Debra lol...after a night of tasting some good wine, I don't know that I'd ever get that chain lock on or off ha ha! Cute post!!!

Guillaume said...

I love mazes and their symbolic. They are fascinating.

Professor Chaos said...

Definitely. Screw those rules. Those are the man's rules, not ours!

Fundy Blue said...

I got such a kick out of this funny post, Debra! I used to love mazes, but I haven't done one since I stopped teaching. I frequently had mazes on hand for my school kiddos who enjoyed them. I was just looking at a cover of an old Time Magazine that has a huge maze ~ wondering if it was a true maze and if I could solve it. Perhaps I should give it a go. Have a great day tomorrow!

this is all about our complicated psyche
we like to choose difficult ways to reach our easy destination.

enjoyed the way you put it my friend :)

Jono said...

The kid is thinking outside the box.

Bob Johns said...

OMG that first one I could just see people doing that.

Cheers.

My mom loves doing these!!
I went to an art exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It was done by Yoko Ono. This was like 8 years ago? It was a large maze where you could walk through. All plexiglass. In the middle, was a "toilet"! LOL! Well, guess who got there without any problem? Me! LOL! The lady said, I was the first one who did it. I was very proud. I don't know what that said about me? LOL!

Magic Love Crow said...

I forgot to say, I think that lock one is cool!

Magic Love Crow said...

Hey Debra, does Leeanna know we can't comment on her blog? When I go to her postings, there is no comment button?

Magic Love Crow said...

Hey Debra, sorry to be a pest! I was able to comment!

My biggest fear is going into one of those hedge mazes and never finding my way out. Then someone finds me six months later.
