Alhambra. Thousands of words were written about it. Words that fail to express its power, its beauty. The spiritual experience of being enveloped in endless patterns. The feeling of awe when standing in the midst of one of the greatest human creations. A lesson in humility. A glimpse at what can be achieved when tolerance, cooperation, art and science come together as they did in Spain before 1482.
On the week when another architectural marvel, the Notre Dame in Paris was almost lost, I feel the need to look at these images again, share them as if sharing would safeguard them from harm. Keep them safe for generations to come. Allow it to radiate harmony, beauty and hope on our world.
Because we need it.
