Cornfed (warning: Here There Be Puns.)


'Tis the season for cornfield labyrinths, and I thought this one was rather moooving.



I didn't take this picture, so please pay attention here: This picture is credited to "REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY IMAGES OF THE DAY)". I want to be sure they get the credit they are due because this image simply jumped out at me in my Yahoo feed. And partly because I'm lazy, though mostly because there's no better way to inform about this picture (so why rewrite it?), here's what Yahoo had to say about the photo:

An aerial view shows a labyrinth in the form of a cow that is cut into a corn and hemp field in Marienfelde outside Berlin September 2, 2009. The labyrinth was created by the Federal Institute of Risk Assessment to raise awareness for healthy eating and dangers from harmful substances in food as well as to explain the digestion process in the stomach of a cow.


I really 'cud' not resist, especially in light of my "Haptic" labyrinth embroidery project in the current issue of the 'zine. It is true, though, that I love a good corn maze. I'd love to see pics and hear stories of mazes near any of you.

Does anyone else think "corn and hemp field" is a bit of a surprising combination? Doesn't bother me, I'm just thinking about some people's tendency to mix the harvested and processed results. Corn chips and... _________, anyone? (YARN, of course. What else could I possibly have meant??)

I'll be watching for interesting corn mazes this year! It's been a while since I've had a good maze-wander, so I think I'll have to remedy that. I'm thinking, however, I'd pass up the opportunity to wander around in some animal's GI track. I'm not squeamish, I just think it would poop me out.

ruminating and wandering,
rebecca.

Wow... I could visit and contemplate being cud, traveling back and forth between stomachs and mouth.

r maybe just stick to your laptop maze. (which I love, BTW, and plan to replicate in textured knit.)
