A meditative journey in a compressed amount of space could describe one way people use a prayer labyrinth, and it occurred to me the Christian Lenten season which comes to a close today, is also used by some people of faith for a meditative journey through 40 days of growing unease and disorientation to the hopelessness of death and darkness and then the surprising shift at the transforming center: a brilliant Easter morning with death completely overturned. I am wishing everyone who celebrates it a lovely close to Holy Week and a joyous Easter. This outdoor labyrinth is open to the public in the courtyard of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in the Uptown neighborhood. Whenever I walk by I admire the unique 1962 "Googie" style roof that fits in so well with similar design elements of nearby landmarks built at the same time like Key Arena and Seattle Center.
