“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2013 labyrinth walks, Mountain View United Methodist Church-Boulder CO:
I walked out of Edward’s apartment to an absolutely phenomenally gorgeous, but unbelievably hot day. It is 10:30 mountain time, and there’s not a cloud in the sky.
I got a cup of coffee at Starbucks and overheard people talking about how hot it was going to be in the CU Stadium for tonight’s football game. And I thought: there is no way I would want to be in that stadium … no way in hell … 🙂
I pulled up my list of labyrinths for Boulder. I chose Mountain View Methodist; however, I was thinking it was an 11- circuit labyrinth not a 7- circuit. I will have to seek out an 11 tomorrow. This is my favorite of the Boulder labyrinths because of the view of the Flat Irons and because of the red rock pavers that they used to make it. It actually connects me to Boulder.
For the first time, I decided to sit down on the warm stones and dictate my notes rather than wait to the end and sit on the bench with the new sign that says “you are invited to walk our labyrinth.”
Across from the church’s property is a public school and park, and there are the children playing a soccer game. Over to the side are two little girls playing in a sprinkler. It is really a very peaceful day, and I am so glad I got up this morning and went out to do this.
What a treat! I have a broken one of my rules of labyrinth walking: double tasking while walking. While sitting in the center, I have texted and responded to emails. But it’s a nice place.
Just as I finish double tasking, the church’s choir started practicing. It’s going to be perfect for my walk out. They are singing hallelujah…
Oh, and for you, Jill, here is a peace pole/labyrinth combo!
And for you, Cheryl …
