Caryatids, Blenheim Palace

As an escape from the worries and cares of the moment, I've been looking through images, reminding myself of beautiful places and pleasanter times. Behind Blenheim Palace is a Water Terrace. A row of caryatids are positioned as if they are holding up the formal garden on the level above. They look uncomfortable. In times when the world weighs me down, I think of the caryatids who cannot move, cannot complain. They simply carry the weight and, perhaps, hope that some day their burdens will be lifted.
