Mother Nature host some of the most beautiful sights in the world, some in our country and some in other countries!
When you see a place like this, natural beauty enhanced carefully by the hand of man, it makes you wonder how a people that so lovingly cared for and maintained sites like this...can still be cold enough and uncaring enough and even mean hearted enough to be responsible for the types of carnage we see on the news each and every day!
Quinta da Regaleira
Another of my favorites, the Initiation Well located at Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra, Portugal contains a descending spiral staircase which leads to a variety of exits. The well gets its name from the belief that it was home to masonic initiation rituals. At the well’s bottom is a compass rose atop a Knight’s Templar cross. The symbolism of the well relates to life and death, a common theme for initiation rituals.
I've never been to this place, but I feel that it would be awe inspiring to visit! It would be great to know a little more history about this marvel, don't you think?
Coffee out on the patio this morning. It's chilly, but there's no snow or rain and that's a good thing.
