The World Is Big…
And I just keep getting smaller and smaller as I see more of it. Not only by traveling. But in nature, in our children…It seems the lesson is always that I am a small part of the world and history of this place. Spent some time in Rome and the Coliseum today and WOW – again, there are’t enough words to describe it!
My biggest lesson in this is that thousands of years of history (American brain locks up at that number already) and the coliseums, churches, cathedrals, pagan buildings are literally built on top of each other. All of those pictures we’ve seen of Roman ruins are literally spitting distance from each other… Crazy and fantastic!
Around every corner in the city is another ancient monument, sculpture or ruin. And there is also this modern capital of Italy where people go to work (on danger scooters – yikes), take their kids to the park and pick up groceries while a zillion tourists invade and they pass ancient ruins on the way. Just fantastic!
