May 1 is World Labyrinth Day, and before you quip it — why, yes, every day is a labyrinthine maze of disorienting pathways, false turns, and elaborate hoaxing mojo; sometimes there’s even a monster in the middle. But, as it happens, Labyrinth Day, and labyrinths themselves, propose themselves as a solvent for those anxieties. Walking through an elaborate, 11-course unicursal pathway in quiet reflection just might squelch your brain’s frantic yapping, at least for a while. Especially if there are a bunch of other people doing it beside you! The San Martin campus of the St. Rose Dominican hospital system — owner of a fine labyrinth — will host a noon walking event, though you can presumably celebrate on your own at one of the valley’s many labyrinths (including the one at St. Andrew Catholic Community Church, pictured right).
