The churches, the locals, the coffee, the boats and houses on the river.
My wife and I went round lots of old churches. For such a small place there really is an abundance of churches.
The picture above really does no justice to how wonderful the churches are.
I won’t turn this into a travel journal, or even a thesis on architecture (largely because I know nothing about either).
What all this beauty made me think was as follows:
Is there any one who can still make beautiful art on this scale? Did the skill get lost when cathedrals weren’t as popular as building projects?
Closely followed by:
Hundreds of years ago someone used their talent and built something lasting, beautiful and grand. Centuries later I’m stood enjoying their work, thinking about legacy.
This week I shall be thinking more about what we build that lasts.
The statement is as follows, ‘websites, projects and legacy can fade – what do we leave that lasts?’
Happy Monday to you and yours.
