"It's near the highest point of the Wall, which also is about at the midpoint. I found a snug, sheltered spot among the rocks. I'm sure it's offered a haven from storms for both people and sheep over the ages.
The walk has been a little tough at times, but always wonderful. Most of the path goes through sheep paddocks, and since it's lambing season we always have an audience of wobbly legged little guys watching us. The countryside has been beautiful: the Roman ruins, farm houses, small streams and creeks, castle walls, etc."
"My advisor, Dr. Marguerite Keane, is a medieval art historian and she has wanted a labyrinth on campus for a long time. She planned the project with Gabriele Hiltl- Cohen (pictured left) who manages the gallery on campus. Gabriele is a stone carver and she designed the labyrinth and carefully carved each of the stones. Labyrinths are not very popular today but they are extremely special and personal places. Walking a labyrinth is a spiritual journey. They date from ancient times but were adopted by Christians. Many early Christian churches contained labyrinth's on their floors but most of them have been destroyed or covered by pews or chairs. Walking labyrinths is a spiritual art form that has all but disappeared today. The labyrinth on Drew's campus is not meant to be a religious procession but more of a personal journey. It is important to have this on a college campus because as students, we need to take time to relax and reconnect with ourselves. I am so grateful that Drew has the labyrinth and that I was here when it was installed and had its opening. Hopefully generations of Druids (Drew students) will be able to enjoy it as much as I do. I would like to bury a planet in the center of the labyrinth to give it more of a history and some positive energy for its future. I think that the Infinity Project has a lot to do with peoples journeys through life and the places they are connected to and that the labyrinth is a parallel to life's journeys."
"The planet is located in Prague, Czech Republic. I selected to place it in Vyšehrad, an historical fortress in Prague that overlooks the Vltava River, and was where I attended my classes while living in Prague for four months."
Dropped her Infinity Planet into the lake at Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge. Wapanocca is just outside the town of Turrell, AR, in eastern Arkansas, not far from the Mississippi River. The lake there is beautiful. Right now it is filling up with lotus pads and blooms!
"The infinity planet is hidden near the Hawa Memorial Savior Hospital within the national headquarters of the Savior Church of Ghana in Osiem in the Eastern Region of Ghana. See the attached photo."
Shawn, Ben, Macy and Willa Durrett
Pictured is Willa and Macy hiding their Infinity Planet in Prata, Italy, right outside the town of Suveretto.
Willa was first introduced to Josh Simpson's planets by her preschool teacher at Deerfield Elementary Preschool during their study of space and planets. Willa was immediately fascinated, and would sit in front of the shelf, transfixed by the collection. The Durrett Family planned a trip to visit Grandparents in Italy. This was Willa's first journey overseas making this a very special adventure for Willa and her family!
Diantha Wholey and Phil Verdi
Diantha and Phil brought a planet to hide in Truesdale Lake where Josh Simpson and his two brothers Randy and Kim grew up. This was in honor of their Mom, Norma. It was hidden on the day of Norma’s memorial service. Diantha took on the honors of throwing the Planet into the lake where Norma loved to ice skate.
"Here is a picture of the Chicago Burlington & Quincy locomotive 3006 at the Galesburg Railroad museum in Galesburg, IL. I will hint that the planet is near one of the larger wheels on the left side. This locomotive is awe inspiring and I can hardly imagine what it was like seeing those machines back in the old days before my time. Thanks for choosing me for the infinity project and ya'll be sure to visit Galesburg. Home of Carl Sandburg, George Ferris, and one of the largest railyards in the country. Ronald Reagan lived here during his younger days too. If you like history Galesburg has a story to tell."
