Thinking of a place.

The sun is setting on a scene I’ve waited 26 years to see. There’s people around me; for some, this is one of many such sunsets; for others it’s as new as it is for me. But I doubt that many more are feeling that same sense of satisfaction, of wholeness, of meeting your childhood hero and discovering that he’s every bit as great as you thought he’d be.
The sun sets to a remote West where it’s already tomorrow. The sun sets, the wind picks up and I’m reminded of a song from The War on Drugs.
And I’m thinking of a place
And it feels so very real
I might stay here for a while.

  1. Childhood heroes often disappoint. Excellent to hear that this one hasn’t. 🙂 Live on!

  2. It’s how I felt when I went to Egypt. It’s how I felt when I went inside to the very middle of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. Every bit as great as I thought it would be – from when I was 14 years old.
    Where is this photo? Iceland somewhere?

    Rapa Nui, eh? That would be one of those, “pinch me, am I really here?” sort of places. It’s nice when a journey that far resonates so well.

    Fabrizio- I’m so excited for you. Râpa Nui is pure magic. Soak it up and bring it home with you.

  5. Annie and I were just talking today about how much we loved Easter Island and then I opened up your post and saw the photo. We spent 3 days driving around the island and also sat on the grass and watched sunsets from different spots each day. Absolutely fascinating and as someone already said, truly magical.
    Enjoy your time there.

    OMG! L’Ile de Paques. You are there. Shades of Thor Heyerdal and childhood readings. Enjoy the magic.
