We are very sorry to report to you
that your particular maze has been constructed with a fatal flaw
and is actually lacking a center  
So you will unfortunately not have the opportunity in this lifetime 
to experience the sense of success and accomplishment that others 
with perfectly created mazes will experience
We hope this does not cause you too much undue distress confusion and pain
Better luck next time !

    Hi Ingrid. Sounds like a grand opportunity to determine our own path and construct a center. Life is beautiful, Ingrid. Very thought provoking...... Robert.

    I like this one! Makes me think. Is this what happens when we let others determine our path, and base our success or failure on expectations of others?
