“Live like a hero. That’s what the classics teach us. Be a main character. Otherwise what is life for?”
― J.M. Coetzee
At the entrance to the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden there is a wonderful ellipse of lawn under tall trees, bordered by thick vegitation and smattered with large, classic bronze sculptures. It is an awesome area – the feeling of time and genius distilled into molten metal and molded into immortal human shapes.
I wish I could spend every morning in a space like that, thinking about my day.
