Today I had the opportunity to show some friends around downtown Denver. Amid the ooohs and aaaaws that come from country folks visually stimulated by sky scrapers, some for the first time, were explanations of various events and how my life in the city revolves around them.
We spotlighted the high points of downtown, because one of our visitors had developed an unwelcomed tooth ache, but they got to see the most visually interesting parts of the city, including the glass structures we all take for granted, living here. Amazement was revealed over the size of the sky scrapers, the size of beams put into place by sky-cranes and how various buildings look a bit out of sync with the rest of the world, as we drove under overhangs, bridges and sculpture.
I was reminded again of the spirit of a child, learning new information every moment of the day.
