To walk among ruins

To walk among ruins is to realize the fragility of life
To connect with those who came before
To observe commonalties,
To puzzle at differences
To marvel at ingenuity
To hear their voices echoed in stones that have stood for thousands of years
Inevitably, to misunderstand the message

  1. So interesting to experience. My first close experience was at Skara Brae nearly thirty years ago. The first humans arrived here in the 13th century, the first Europeans about 1800, relatively recent.
