Nature, Abandoned Buildings, and Violent Impermanence

I follow this interesting account on social media called @itsabandoned, which features structures around the world that are abandoned and ultimately what they look like as Earth reclaims the land. Aesthetically it’s pretty cool on an entertainment level, but on a deeper level it’s incredible to see how quickly nature consumes these mansions and amusement parks and facilities.

I imagine being at these various locations when they were in operation and think about how overtly obviously permanent they must have felt. Yet, in less time then you’d think nature is teaching the great Buddhist lesson of impermanence. 

It’s all temporary. We’re all temporary.
