Baha’i TempleThe Baha’i Temple in Wilmette Illinois is an extraordinary piece of architecture.
One ascends many stairs to enter the Temple each one affording the opportunity to circumnavigate the building.
Peer down at well ordered gardens and view The Lake. Thats how we natives refer to Lake Michigan.
One enters a zone of strong spiritual peace, a sense that all is right with the world despite appearances.
I loved this place as a child. There are seven in the world and we have one, no one else in the US.
A fact that made me feel lucky and proud. Now I live a 15 minute drive from the Baha’i.
I visit often these days to celebrate, to sit in the visitors center to write. I seem to need its beauty igniting my eye.
I value that zone of peace more and more. It restores me.
