Which half is the Maze?

Hi there.

My name’s Sara, and I have a Maze problem. If you’re reading this, it’s very likely that you have the same problem. But rather than fight my addiction to Christopher Manson’s strange, gorgeous, absorbing, frustrating, brilliant book, I have decided to just give in to it completely. I recommend this approach to you as well. You can start by watching the thousands of hours of enthralling Mazecast videos available here, if you haven’t already.

A consummate enabler, Alex/sp has been kind enough to grant me this space to further fuel my obsession by blathering about Maze-y things. It’s called Aria’s Blog because that’s the name I use over on the Abyss. In the unlikely event that you don’t know what the Abyss is, check it out immediately and come back. I’ll wait.

For solutions to Maze, the Abyss and the Mazecasts have pretty well got it covered, so I’m not going to go into those much here, except as springboards for other ideas and topics. Instead I want to use this space to explore how an object of obsession such as Maze can transform the way you look at everything. I find myself noticing Maze connections everywhere – in architectural details, in a song, in a piece of text. It has made stealthy inroads into nearly every part of my life and even appears in my dreams.

To that end, in addition to random Maze-y musings, I’ll be posting photos, a complete room/drink pairing (a project I started late in the Mazecasts), a mix-tape list with a song for each room, and any other meta-Maze stuff I think you might find interesting or fun.

Is Maze fanfic possible? I don’t know. Maybe I’ll give it a try. Let’s see what happens.

Thanks for reading!
