If a labyrinth is well made you can lose yourself inside. You walk and walk, and nothing happens. Your mind just would like to elevate, zoom out, decipher the code.
It is the setting of so many horror movies, I have an Italian one in mind, it might be by Sergio Martino, but I am not sure. One of these films where the cute lady gets killed by the sexy killer with leather gloves. Fortunatly in the labyrinth of life, you don't always get killed, I am glad to hear your parents could escape the bullet.
The labyrinth is not chaotic, it has a logic, it is made by hands, that cuts and selects plants and shapes. Mostly we imagine a gardener, but there could be many.
Mostly just one type of plant is used, but there could be many.
Colors and flowers and leaves, and seasons.
