It is curious to us that most people with whom we converse seem to forget the immense beauty about the planet we habitat. Natural and human made beauty.
Sunsets, storms, lakes, city landscapes, night skies, stone walls, green pastures, deserts, rock formations, caves, castles, trees, tree lines, religious buildings and flowers. There are shocking uniquenesses about them.
Things as basic as clouds 11,000 feet up at Lake Titicaca can have you lying on the hillside mesmerized. Or watching a sunset from Pao de Acucar transitioning natural light to the city lights, giving glow to the neighborhood pockets, mountains, lakes, and ocean about Rio de Janeiro. Might this be the most beautiful city in the world from above?
Then we walk through the streets of Paris or an indigenous town in Bolivia, overwhelmed by the beauty of the buildings and/or the people. We’ve seen thousands upon thousands of buildings before. Why are these jaw dropping? Why are these people tugging at our curiosity?
This planet we live on is brilliantly beautiful.
You’ve been given one Earth. Travel, live, work and study about it.
