Panorama by Caroling Geary
San Francisco Bay, USA


The Great Spirit Path is a wheel, an artwork, a stone poem. At dawn, when the sun is rising on January 1, 2000, I stand in the western opening of the rings of rocks, looking east. The sky is overcast as I set up tripod and camera. I spin a panorama, taking pictures all around. I honor the change of the century from 1900s to 2000s. I honor the countdown to the change of the millennium on January 1, 2001. I honor the panographers around the world who are taking pictures and creating QTVRs with me on this day.

In imagination, I gong the wheel with color and hear vibe afterimages of spirit. Centering attention is the primary target. Blue energy. Red love. Yellow action and awareness. Self.

Opening to all is the surround target; always beyond, behind. Afterimage ground. Turquoise green aura of earth, Gaia. Orange trace of presence, spirit animal. Orchid spirit connection. Whole.

Thank you friend stones and artist who placed you. I call this a Color Bell. I sing, "Who-leo, whol-eo, wh-o-o-o-ol-eo." The Flash animation in the panorama is the Wholeo symbol. The circle of consciousness expands outwards and returns to the point.

Here's a game to play. Zoom the pano all the way in with the "+" button. Then see if you can move your pointer around the red circle, keeping the Wholeo symbol as close as you can in the red. If you went CW, turn around and go CCW, too. To see Aura, click red. To see Wholeo, click the center rock. To turn off both, click blue. 'On mouse ups' work in mysterious ways.

This Great Spirit Path sculpture is the end point of 53 clusters of stones in Bayfront Park, Menlo Park, California, USA. The park covers the old garbage dump and landfill that originally polluted the bay. Migrating birds and threatened species in the wetlands have made a comeback. Some of the bay has been reclaimed. Now environmentalists are fighting proposed San Francisco airport runways and transbay bridge piers that threaten to fill in the bay some more.
