“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2016 Lenten Labyrinth Walks (Walk 11/40), The Cathedral of St. Philip – Atlanta Georgia:
What a difference a day can make.
Today it is 54° and cloudy
And it feels like 45°.
Moisture on the labyrinth
Production labyrinths … Setting makes all the difference!
Windows to the Lanier House
4–7 – 8 breathing … An interesting practice on a labyrinth.
Loud helicopter and loud traffic on Peachtree Road
And I pondered the meaning of “In the Fullness of Time”
1What I am saying is that as long as an heir is underage, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. 2The heir is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. 3So also, when we were underage, we were in slavery under the elemental spiritual forcesa of the world. 4But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.b 6Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba,c Father.” 7So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.

Bloomers, Harper Lee:
Bloomers: Many, but not all of you, know that in the way that creative life can often surprise, Harper Lee was one of you. One of us. You might be as surprised as I am that she played a large role in my recent return to the streets of Bloom County– streets inspired by those of Maycomb. When I retired Opus from the Sunday comics some years ago, Harper let me know her displeasure, with all the southern, gracious elegance we knew her for. See the letter below. I’ve waited until her passing to show it. We came to exchange many similar notes… including one in which she grudgingly forgives me for my retirement (irony alert). Imagine my 14 year-old self — freshly savoring the first reading of Mockingbird and sending Miss Lee a fan letter in 1970 — being told about another fan letter returning my way almost 40 years distant. Life is wonderful and strange and wistful and happy at the same time. And I’m happy to share this with all of you today.
Harvard, Free Online Class, Religious Literacy:
This is one example of the “widespread illiteracy about religion that spans the globe,” said Diane Moore, director of Harvard Divinity School’s Religious Literacy Project to The Huffington Post. To combat this illiteracy, Moore and five other religion professors from Harvard University, Harvard Divinity School and Wellesley College are kicking off a free, online series on world religions open to the masses. The courses are being offered via an online learning platform called edX, which Harvard University launched with Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012.

Danica Patrick, Lyft:
NASCAR sweetheart Danica Patrick took on a different kind of driver role right here in the Queen City. While dropping subtle hints to her passengers, Patrick gave a few lucky folks a ride. “My boyfriend thinks I’m a horrible driver… ‘Cause I don’t follow the rules, I drive too fast, I ride too close.” “I try and get like 500 miles in on Sundays, and I try to do it under four hours.” And of course, at the end of their ‘lyft’, Danica revealed herself– and there were selfies.
People Who Wear Crazy Socks Are Smart And Revolutionary, YourTango, crazy socks:
I think I need to get my husband some new socks. I still remember your red socks at my wedding, cousin Mark!
Men and women who wear crazy, colorful socks are independent, interesting, and successful, at least according to an article in Elite Daily. These socks can be outrageous colors like chartreuse or neon green, or have gigantic eyes, lobsters, flying pigs, or over-frosted cupcakes all over them — as long as they aren’t a dull brown or blue, they can reveal much about the wearer. People who wear crazy socks are telling the world that they refuse to conform to social trends, boldly displaying their playful personalities and unique sensibilities. They’re leading a revolution against uniforms and decorum.
‘Firefall’, Yosemite Waterfall Looks Like Lava:
For a short time every February, when conditions are just right, Horsetail Falls in Yosemite gets transformed by a phenomenon known as “firefall.” When the sunlight hits the water just right, the waterfall looks like molten lava flowing down the side of El Capitan. Photographer Sangeeta Dey was there to see and capture the firefall this year, and her above photo has been going viral. “Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a fluid fire,” writes Dey, who also shares her work through Instagram and 500px. “I’ve met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen 2 or 3 times.” “When the fall started glowing, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she says. “For 10 minutes, all of us sat there mesmerized by this spectacle. When it ended, a few of us had tears in our eyes. Some people were clapping. And others were just ecstatic to finally get a chance to see it after trying for years.”
