IG: Stand tall, strong and rooted… The people of Pompeii fled their homes after the eruption of Vesuvio in 79 AD. Many though, remained in their homes, either too attached to their material wealth or helpless as to where to run. The remains of those that were found and casted send a chilling mental glimpse into a moment many of us today may or may not be able to relate to. What did that moment feel like? What does it feel like to not know where to go in the face of death? Where to run? If you will live to see tomorrow… What is it like to have everything you have grown to know and love be swept away under your feet and burnt to ash? We live in fear of those thoughts daily (other countries more closely than others), but it’s one thing to have a subconscious theoretical fear tucked away, and it’s another to face that reality with only moments to choose your demise. Grimm. But it’s the history of our people. Our relatives. Our ancestry. Ourselves as a species. And here I stand today, generations later, wondering what ruins from this present day will be interesting/educational to our future men…? #twerk ? #iPad ? #dab ? #? #Pompeii #ruins #Naples #Napoli #italy #vesuvius #travel #wander #globetrotter #adventure #sightseeing #history #vacation #girlstrip #friends #yoga #treepose #rooted #namaste
