Literary Pyramids


I think inspiration is a wonderful thing. While in Mexico, I decided to visit pyramids in Teotihuacan. I did something that I think might have been the literary highlight of my year.

I took my handy-dandy camera and made this...

A British man took this photo of me. His family was quite impressed that I was working on my novel on a pyramid! Who can say that?

I must confess: I was quite proud of myself.

I have never heard of these Teotihuacan Pyramids until I read your blog tonight. Then I went out to eat at a new Mexican restaurant here in Westwood and there it was!
A paper placemat describing and illustrating a couple areas of Mexico and one of them was, yes, the Teotihuacan Pyramids!!

How can you look at the monitor from the glare of the sun ?

It's still pretty awesome in my opinion ...

it would be really cool if you novelized under the sea. . .

Way cool and awesome, indeed!
It's as if the circles of time overlap, combining current technology with historical locations.

Hey Noel!

I was at the pyramids earlier this year... see?!

I did not bring my laptop, and therefore couldn't say I did anything cool like writing a novel on the pyramids.

All I did climb up and down them. So boring, comparatively.

Wow, talk about inspiration! This is beautiful, Noel. What a great place to just let your thoughts flow.
