reflections on traveling The beauty of the fellowship was its gift of solitude and time-
a singular opportunity to read, to think, to observe. . .
in fact, to reflect, on architecture and on building,
that universal experience.
The experience of another culture,
another history, another language
gave me (more than anything)
a deep appreciation of time
and the sense of its weight.
