Beauty takes time . . . or, time creates beauty
If you have never been to Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, you are missing out on one of the most fascinating geological treasures on this Earth.
Take for example the Balanced Rock. It got to its precarious position because it was a harder stone on top less dense stone. Over millions of years, erosion took away much of what was under the harder stone, leaving this unlikely monument to nature's beauty.
But it took MILLIONS OF YEARS! Beauty doesn't just happen. As an architect, I'm building arches all the time (okay, well not always arches), but "arch" is in the name of my job.
Anyways, creating a beautiful building is similar. It takes a lot of time. The process is slow and tedious and involves thousands, even millions, of little decisions that all add up to a single building.
