Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

11 Sep



Tikal, Guatemala


Near and Far.

After the crazy turbulent mini plane ride where you  almost died, you thank God when you land on the jungle floor and the mosquito attacks you.

You enter the plaza and see it. It’s majestic.

You can’t believe your people built this, and it takes you ages to build something with Legos.

You walk to the base. It’s there. You’re close. You’re near.

And then you look at the steps. You look at the top.

It’s 125 feet tall.


You take a breath, a bottle of water, and are thankful that you wore deodorant.

Near and Far.
