Dear friends and visitors,
Please come and see us, a mobilized chain of prayer flags, tomorrow as we walk the center of Madison, Wisconsin. This is a project of quiet intention, a mobile symbol of goodwill, care and peace offered throughout the places where we walk. Volunteers will be wearing the shirts you see in this post's images and walking with me. We hope you will see us if you are at the Farmer's Market or just around the capitol mid day on Saturday. Please consider yourself invited to attend the informal reception and picnic at James Madison Park where we'll be finishing our walk at 2pm.
Here is a schedule and our expected locations:
10:45a - shift 1 volunteers meet and organize at Georgia O'keefe Middle School.
11a - shift 1 begins walking up Williamson St. toward the Capitol square via King St. We should arrive at the top of King St. by approximately 11:30 and will continue to loop the capitol square until the end of the hour.
12p - shift 2 meets, organizes and begins walking the capitol square with branches to Monona Terrace and down State Street.
1p - shift 3 meets, organizes and begins walking the capitol square with branches down State Street and to James Madison Park for the finish.
2p - All participants, friends, guests, citizens of Madison and interested onlookers are invited to attend the informal reception and picnic at James Madison Park. This is a time to meet the artist and participants, gain perspective or information into the themes of F L A G S and to celebrate this peaceful offering.
