Connecting Earth to Sky

Temple of the Wings
Temple of the Wings Berkeley

Florence Treadwell’s home and dance studio. Years ago, from where I live in Berkeley I could see this temple lit up at night from my window. The view itself was a religious experience.

The Berkley Unitarians chose to leave their place on the University of California campus rather than sign the anti-Communist Loyalty Oath of the 1960’s. It is now a dance studio.

Connecting Community to Community 

Tori Gate
Torii Gate Oakland

Torii Gate: “A marker and a portal from the profane world of our modern civilization to a primeval sacred place where people feel awe and wonder of forces larger than their individual selves, also unity and identification with that.”

The large vermillion Torii gate, a gift from Oakland’s sister city Fukuoka, Japan, serves as a landmark for the entire Gardens of Lake Merritt.

I found in my achieves these images from around Berkeley and Oakland may they move you feel wonder and awe even for just one moment.
