History

It’s been a few weeks.  Been busy with quite a few other things, from work to school to Goddess.  All are worth it, but I still need this little piece.

School is focused on history, which is ones of my loves.  It didn’t used to be that way, since I suffered through it during my school years.

But as I grew older, I came to understand, appreciate and love it.

It’s even better when you can walk the grounds.

Roman Overlook

And open your eyes to the world.

This portal is looking west from the the plateau-top fortress of Masada, looking over the grounds that the Roman Empire camped while slaves built an earthen ramp up to the fortress so the defenses could be breached and the fortress overtaken.  The story is both tragic and heroic at the same time.  And we’re much better for the insight that Shimon provided us.

Masada, Dead Sea, Israel.
