As the sun began its descent, the light dissipated slowly beyond the shoreline of the Crete Sea. Tonight, I dig deep into the smooth and cool black soil that was made from the ancient volcanic activity of the caldera. I wondered, surrounded by a distant ambient of a crowd having drinks and sharing laughter, who could not care any less for this marvel before all of us, if they would only practice the patience to pause for a moment. For just a brief and fleeting lapse, to be able to experience the beauty before their presence instead of chasing down the dreams and clouds. It is right here ever so present. You need only to look up.
