The past few days I’ve been going at a very heavy pace, visiting as many places and meeting as many people as I possibly can. I’m only here for a week, so I feel compelled to make the most out of every minute. Today, however, I decided to slow down a bit. I’ve also decided to give myself and you, dear reader, a break. This won’t be an endless blog post, instead I’ll leave you with a few photographs of my visit to Grace Cathedral.
I chose Grace Cathedral for my day of rest because of its labyrinths. Those of you who have followed my journey might remember my first experience walking a labyrinth. I knew that walking a labyrinth, particularly one in such a magnificent sacred space as Grace Cathedral, would be just the thing to do for my teeming spirit and my tired body.
Thank you for reading along, and thank you for your kind comments, which I find both encouraging and thought-provoking.

What are the ribbons of light? Are they actual ribbons?
Yes, miles and miles of ribbon in different colors. It’s a beautiful installation that draws your eyes up. I was told it’s particularly nice during mass or whenever there are more people in because they move and sway a bit.
Absolutely beautiful. My friend Linda Lambert loves this particular indoor labyrinth.
Beautiful cathedral! Also – “I walked some four of five of the steepest blocks I’ve ever known, only to be greeted by the Cathedral’s backside!” What an interesting piece of symbolism/parallel, if one were to perceive it that way 😉
