    Interesting commentary, Beth and Dave. I had a similar thought: if sacred still means something, say it first. And maybe there is no need to say more.

    Interesting shot.

    My take on the ‘afterthought’ positioning of “This Place is Sacred”:

    p.s. In case you hadn’t figured it out, this sign is an attempt to instill the FEAR OF GOD in you!

    Ha! There is that aspect, too, Karyn! Thanks for pointing it out.

    I do like how “please” is the one word in full caps.

    And if I were to start thinking too hard about it, the conflation of “on surfaced path” and “off walls” could make me a little crazy(er). It would make me want to look for a wall that’s not on the path for the sheer rebellious satisfaction of perching on it.

    Interesting ruminations on the word “sacred” and if it’s overused. I have a similar reaction to the word “tragic” these days (I feel it’s too often used as a synonym for “sad”), but that’s a meditation for some other place, as it were.

      Quite right about “tragic.” George Carlin had a rant about that, too.
