Why the name?

The title of my blog comes from the poem Hound of Heaven by the English poet Francis Thompson. The opening lines of the poem describe Francis running away from God through the “labyrinthine ways” of his own mind. This image caught my attention when I first read the poem in high school.

The human mind is a mysterious labyrinth. It’s a labyrinth full of light and darkness from where each individual reaches out to the divine, the transcendent, to God.

Life is a mystery and the mind is where we process it all. This blog is a way for me to explore the labyrinthine ways of my own mind and share it with others.
