I like to take the scenic route to Centering Prayer. It is calming, which puts me in the right frame of mind. Otherwise I have to take the freeway, which is the exact opposite. It is faster, but while I gain time, I lose my calm. Taking the back road makes me feel like I have traveled back in time.
There are little areas along the way, little milestones. I’d like to share them with you.
This is traveling to Centering Prayer, so I am traveling East. (All images are from Google Maps)
