You know, Adam, looking at these photos of the pyramids, the Sphinx, and the temples in Luxor, I am moved by the thought that these people, and these times, were pretty fabulous in their own right, and that mankind as a whole is a mystery. As fantastic as some of our technological advances are today, it is clear, looking at these pictures, these people had a an astonishing cosmological vision of the universe and their place in it. They were BIG PICTURE thinkers!! Our vision seems diminished or non-existant by comparison. If there is any search or adventure worth anything, it is to discover a new vision with which to inspire ourselves to the greatness of which the past instructs us that we are capable. Thank you again for a great travel diary!
