"the world just became a little less wonderful today"

a friend of mine posted that thought today, and it's too terribly true --- losing a great building is not unlike the loss of a good friend --- but notre dame? one of the world's greatest buildings

i only went inside once, but i'll never forget the real awe i felt looking up at this window and just being in that wonderful light of the interior --- it was the soul of paris --- it'll get rebuilt, i'm betting, but the 800 year old cathedral is mostly gone

right now, i am sick

UPDATE: clearly all was not lost --- even the rose windows did not suffer catastrophic damage
