I find these modern day ruins quite compelling. At one time they would have been the manifestation of an ambition, and now they are nothing more than traces of things that are lost and inaccessible. I had in mind the last stanza from Wendell Berry's truly great poem

Manifesto: The Mad Farmers Liberation Front
"Be like the fox
who makes more tracks then necessary
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection"
