Field Notes: Use Your City To Find Your Center | State Capitol

If you ever find yourself in need of 'centering', I suggest the 3-step process below. Given where we live, it's certainly not the only option, but it's a doozy. You + this = state-of-mind bliss.

1. Wake up early and get moving. Park your bike or self at the east end of South Temple before the sunrise. Difficult the first time, maybe...but easier once you've seen the fruit of your efforts. [*Note: there's a nice little parking spot in front of my building - The Maryland at 839 E. South Temple - if you'd like.]

2. Walk down South Temple. Take care to look around. History and incredible architecture are everywhere, and every building has something different to say. Sometimes I talk to them. They never talk back. I always look crazy. I never care.

3. Head up City Creek. Take the east stairs that will lead you to the Capitol. Prepare for the sunrise over the Wasatch Mountain Range. In truth, you'll find little difficulty in getting to your happy place from here. This vantage point is particularly 'om' and ripe for meditation, prayer, silence, gratitude, or basic awe-and-wonder.

Greet the day with love and kindness!


Success! We'll get you on the list in short order! You can expect all future Friday mornings to be something of a dream...
a fresh dose of city culture, new listings, and top-shelf design will land squarely on your virtual doorstep.

We need to talk.

It'll be fun. You've got questions, and we can't wait to answer them. Don't hold back--getting down to brass tacks is kind of our thing...

Done. That was probably an excellent question, and we're ready to help. Hang tight...someone at cityhomeCOLLECTIVE will get back to you in a flash.
