This icon, the Sphinx, is so huge, so ominous.  It just sits there, regally, gazing out over the desert; a sentry for the pyramids, on guard for invading marauders who would rather destroy what was sacred.  Or, at least, so I imagine.  Actually, it was quite incredible to be there from before sunrise, without hordes of tourists.  Just our little group of 25, alone amongst these seemingly alive “beings” on the Giza plateau.  Whether quietly singing or meditating or imagining, we were all in awe, blessed to be thrust into ancient times and tingling mystery.
