    I always find such places meditative rather than desolate; not sorrowful but story-full. Compelling. Great shots!

    It makes you wonder how long these people managed to exist in this desolate place. Wish we knew all the hardships and joys they experienced in this area. Bet there were some interesting stories to tell.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
