A Short Skyscrapers Story From Milan
I love skyscrapers! I love the fact that they just rise from the ground and stand there, although your mind tells you they’re not supposed to, but they still do. What’s up with that?!?
I remember the first time I saw a really impressive skyscraper. Two, to be more precise. It happened a couple of months ago in the city of Milan, Italy. They are pictured above, and they really are huge. The story is, I was coming down from afar and from a distance, they really appeared to be tall, yet not that tall. I hope you get what I’m trying to explain here.
Yet when I got close to them, like a couple hundreds of meters away, and raised my head to see the top, I got dizzy and just overwhelmed. I was under the impression that I was ready to go to New York or Los Angeles, to see the really big fellas, or Dubai, but I questioned myself more than once while standing there, gazing at the immense, tallness of these two buildings.
There’s really no story here actually, but a realisation that sometimes your desires, and pleasures, and needs might not be just what you actually think they are, but will rather overwhelm and scare the hell out of you.
With all that, my experience taught me something. It taught me that, even as scared and amazed as I was about the two skyscrapers of Milan, I’m still in the mood to go see the Empire State Building and climb at the top of the Burj Khalifa. Although the actual experience might still scare me to death, I’ll be just fine and I’ll be glad I did it in the end.
