built from a broken heart

{ Heartbroken and deeply saddened by the loss of his one true love, 26 year old Edward Leedskalnin set out on a lifelong quest to create a monument to his lost love that has become one of the world’s most remarkable accomplishments, Coral Castle. With no outside assistance or large machinery Ed single-handedly built the Coral Castle, carving and sculpting over 1,100 tons of coral rock, as a testimony to his broken heart. Seeing all of his lonely work was weirdly very sad and my mind couldn’t help but wonder. Poor Ed. My favorite part of the day was the Orchid House we decided to stop off at in the Redlands. There is nothing quite like a room full of  beautiful and lovely smelling flowers blooming. }20121118-112817.jpg
