On the Notre Dame Fire

After the horrible fire that’s destroyed much of Notre Dame Cathedral, I’m thankful that I’ve been able to see the cathedral and am noting which cultural sites I’ve put off seeing. I though Notre Dame would always be around. When a building’s been around for centuries, you take their existence for granted. It’s easy to forget that “this too shall pass” applies to everything.

At the top of my list is Chartres Cathedral. I’ve been to Paris and think of visiting Chartres, and wind up postponing it till “next time.”

I’ve never been to Greece and I would like to see their ancient ruins.

Monestary, Lisbon

I’ve never been to Portugal, but would to see Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon.

Though I lived rather close I never visited Koyasan, a temple town in western Japan.
