"The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition."
~ Alan Alda
Looking out the first story window of the powder tower (Prašná brána) in Prague. This was my first time climbing this tower and thus a new outlook on the city.
Side story: I try to give people plenty of grace in this world, HOWEVER, the woman attending the 2nd floor table made it very hard. I understand that she has to put up with a boat load of tourists doing what they please but me & my tripod are no threat to the tower. She had asked me not to use my tripod and since I stick to my word I wasn’t going to. None the less I was trailed by her and a bitter scowl accompanied by the reminder that I shouldn’t be up there with it. There is a Czech colloquialism about bums and boils that would have fit her.
I contemplated the idea of going up and down the twisting steps a number of times to ensure her 50 plus year old frame got a workout but scrapped that idea as mean. Instead as I stood there shooting the museum I told her that I understood she was doing her job,but there was no need for her to be as unpleasant as humanly possible. This did not help her attitude.
