sphinx

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.

I know Las Vegas is quite polarizing.  It’s known as sin city by many; gaudy, too bright, corrupt, etc.  Yet, it’s such a desired destination by so many others.  Whether for gambling or live entertainment or something else it attracts huge crowds of people.  So, are these adult theme parks sacrilege or modern contemporary art?  I didn’t spend a dime on gambling but I sure appreciated the architecture.  What a visual blast!
