There’s that feeling of intense awe that can only be described by when you walk into an ancient church, or are standing in a valley, large mountains surrounding you, or in the forest with a brook in the background. You can see the edges of the universe on the face of a cliff, you feel free within a vast closed space. That pleasant insignificance, the realization of how unimportant you are in the grand scheme of things. You don’t get sad anymore, sometimes it’s nice to know you don’t have to be a king or a famous musician, you can just live life and love the beautiful things. That feeling, like a rising steam in your chest, this overwhelming feeling like a hurricane of emotion, yet in that moment, it’s like you’re free. Your mind races with love for the world and you can, for once, drown out the chaos of a running mind. When you stand in that 800 year old cathedral, you’re standing where millions have stood, so why worry?
