Temple of Earth

During the Chinese New Year, we got caught in two crowds already. The video below is the Temple of Earth. There, it was empty enough so I dared move my hands for a second to shoot the short clip.

It’s hard to feel the numinous there. I’m vaguely reminded of our visit at the pantheon. There, it was not only the number, it was also the constant sound of a shutter, that forbade any feeling of numerous. At the pantheon, it hurt me more than elsewhere, because it is, in a way, the temple of secularists, of us. It was built for all religions, which is to say: for none.
