and the beginning is the end, says the labyrinth.
Therefore I begin with the end. After some intense days the 6th International Labyrinth Congress for the German-speaking countries finished on August 5th, 2012.
In the morning we (the participants) experienced the 3rd labyrinth of the labyrinth municipality Hofkirchen, the art labyrinth of transformation. After that we had a final in the parish community centre.
And here Vita Belavniece proclaimed to organize the next International Labyrinth Congress 2014 at Riga, the capital of Latvia. Riga is together with Umeå in Sweden 2014 the European Capital of Culture.
There was delighted applause and unanimous assent. Claudia and Michael Woldan presented a friendship bracelet to Vita under the benevolent looks of Ilse and the remaining participants. They and many others assured assistance to Vita.
Thus the International Labyrinth Congress for the German speaking area will turn into an International Labyrinth Congress for the European space. Scandinavia is, as is well known, the native country of the labyrinth because of its many Troy Towns. And the Baltics are the home of the Baltic Wheel.
We look forward to Riga.
