sunday post: solid
Sunday, July 15: Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post for this week is solid. He writes: SOLID means : Stable, sturdy, firm, established, durable, rigid, substantial, strong, powerful, loud, heavy, splitting, honest, faithful, straightforward, loyal, conscientious, devoted, honest, faithful, constant, loyal,reliable, dependable, competent, promising, clever, compact, dense, thick, thick-set, concentrated, sterling, neat, pure, stark, constant, steady and united.
Here is the Monastery at Petra. This was the first thing that came to mind when Jake challenged us with the word solid.
Petra’s second most famous attraction is Ad-Deir, or the Monastery. The proportions of this are much bulkier and gargantuan than the Treasury, whose columns are much more delicate and intricately carved. The architectural embellishment is much simpler than the Treasury. But it’s overpowering in its sheer magnitude.
