Circling the mountain -

Orion Magazine reviews a book called Circumambulating Mount Tamalpais: A ritual walk by Matthew Davis and Michael Farrell Scott, with a foreward by Gary Snyder.  Amazon gives it five stars and I have ordered it.  It sounds like a healing thing to do, to walk clockwise around the mountain, healing for the world and us, too.    There are ten stops and the walk is less than fifteen miles.  Matthew Davis has made more than 140 circuits of Mount Tamalpais.  It seems time for us each to begin our own walk.

Gary Snyder urges creativity in how each of us chooses to honor and perform this walking meditation.  He says, "The main thing is to pay your regards, to play, to engage, to stop and pay attention.  It's just a way of stopping and looking - at yourself too."
