The Mark Hopkins Hotel, at Sunset

While on a walking meditation on Grace Cathedral’s labyrinth a few weeks back, as I turned and looped and gently guided my mind to stillness, I kept seeing the warm face of the Mark Hopkins Hotel, framed by daffodils and the darkening winter sky. Its flag flapped festively overhead, while each window whispered with the potential of elegant intrigue.

Can one be mindful/prayerful/thoughtful, and still admire the elegant face of architecture, quickly disappearing with the set of the winter sun?
