Coming Home

By April 5, 2012

Follow me on:

Mount Meeker

Do you recognize this mountain? I just returned from ten days at her radiant feet, participating in a silent meditation retreat ... so very sweet.

Somehow (fortunately or unfortunately?) my fingers are now recalling their capacity to type out words on a computer keyboard. Sigh. I feel both a spacious distance from and a deeper intimacy with "Elizabeth's life." How it matters absolutely and not at all.

Anyway, let's see how good your mountain-identification skills are: who can name this mountain? I'm trying to think of a prize I could offer, for the first one to do so -- though am drawing a blank. So, perhaps, just some kind of inherent, fun-loving satisfaction? Give it a go!

I cant name THAT mountain, but I highly reccommend Mt.Shasta. I was born there, and it is one spiritual place! Always nice reading your words.

Love the contrast and complementarity of the snow-capped mountain and the dark, jagged face with green forest of the foreground land form . . . but cannot “name that mountain.”

Always glad to have your input and company as I too engage in practice.
Thank you, Elizabeth.

ok here’s the answer … the largest of the snow-covered mountains is Mount Meeker, with Long’s Peak peeking out to her immediate left.

The Rocky outcroppings in the foreground are Boulder’s Flatirons. So this is the view of Meeker & Long’s Peak from Boulder. The retreat was about 45 minutes from here, 30 miles or so closer to the high peaks.
