We walked to the top of the wall of this ancient civilization to succumb to the beauty of the seas beyond. People frolic in the water below, escaping the scorching heat of the day. The view alone is enough to explain the Mayans reasons for settling here. Breathtaking.
The sun is bright, hot. You’ve been hiking for hours along dirt trails and creeks. You can hear the water cascading down and know what’s ahead. But your tired, thirsty and hungry. Curiosity is getting to you so you decide to continue on, up the stairs to see what is beyond.
You think of the word as you sit staring at your computer. Wondering, when? The relaxation is so needed that you begin to daydream about the perfect spot. It doesn’t get any better than this. True bliss.
Its humid, hot. The wind slowing stirs the palm fronds above. In the distance you hear the drums as they beat to the Caribbean vibe, drawing you in. You look above within the breeze and the fronds move in perfect harmony to suddenly create the sunburst that highlights your day. Suddenly, all of your worries disappear. Forever.
The moon is out, shining brightly. The sky has cleared enough for us to see beyond the winter cover of clouds and rain. It’s still chilly, though, and the trees remain bare. Waiting for spring to come and warm the earth. Crisp.
There are many things that are great about the technology we have available to us today. It lets us keep our lives in order, keeps us connected to our loved ones, and lets you entertain yourself with games, television, and music. The one thing it lacks is longevity. Items today may have a life of 5 years, if your lucky, before it needs to be replaced. Things made back in the early years of industrialization were made to last forever. Steel, hand forged, and specially made just for what was needed. These are the items that should be cherished, restored as they will never be made like this again.
