Get Away

These Places Will Make You Feel Very Small (22 Photos)

Sitting sequestered in rooms, in neighborhoods, in big cities can make you feel small and insignificant… but it’s a claustrophobic smallness. A feeling that human-made mechanisms beyond your control are ‘closing in on you.’

Then you pack a bag and get out. To the forest, the mountains, the open plains. Walls and fences recede, and suddenly you realize how small and insignificant city life is. Out here in the world you get a taste of true distance, a hint of the reality of your existence as a speck of nothing in an incomprehensibly vast and beautiful universe.

And if you’re lucky, when you’re back in your little room, typing it out on your computer… maybe you’ve brought a slice of that reality back with you.
