I love starting one of his long descriptive sentences, or paragraphs, because you never know where you are going to wind up! A maze is a good description Gypsylee.
Here are few more of my favorites, a bit more along the lines of favorite descriptive passages:
"the sea was the shade of blue that black could have been if it hadn't stepped over the line."
"A straggler, a solitary traveler, the last and final raindrop of the morning--unappologetically tardy, even arrogant as if on an independet mission its meekly conforming confederates could not possibly appreciate or understand--landed on the back of Switter's neck and rolled languidly, defiantly down his spine."
"There, white chickens scratched white chicked poetry into the sad bare earth, and a trio of pigs squealed and grunted, as if in endless protest against a world that tolerated bacon."
DITHOT, the chickens and pigs description was one of my favorites also. The white chickens scratching white chicken poetry into the sad bare earth -- I love it!
