Ruins have always had a fascination for me. I have been to the Coliseum and the Roman Forum in Rome, the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza and Tulum, the Jesuit mission ruins in Argentina and the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia. I like to try to find a spot to sit some where away from the crowds and listen. There may be bird song, or voices but where are the sounds and the voices of the past? They are silent. At Angkor Wat there are carved stone scenes of battles, horses, soldiers, elephants, marching, trumpets blowing, sounds of battle, sounds of life and of death. Now…… just the silence of stone.
