Sometimes I feel like our brilliance (and by “our” I mean society today) is trumped by the grandeur accomplished in such structures as the Parthenon. The feeling you receive from being in the presence of such an august creation does not mirror the feeling you receive from any description of it in a paper, movie, photo or blog post. The Parthenon is a magnificent sight that everyone should witness at least once. You need to be next to it. You need to feel its vast presence; witness miles and miles of its incredible view over the city of Athens.
Have you had this experience? What made you pause….and think, “Wow, this is incredible.” Those are the moments we should seek. These are the moments that make you strive for more. Hopefully you have had many. This was one of mine.
