This newly constructed building is a wedding venue at Robinson Preserve. If anyone objects to the union, they fall through a trap door and come out the bottom.
When not used for weddings, it's available for corporate events or education. It's called the NEST which stands for Nature, Exploration, Science and, Technology. It's one of the more compelling structures to come along recently, so naturally, I had to take a photo.
The preserve borders on the Gulf of Mexico so it's built up high on legs to avoid a tidal surge. I've seen a lot more of this type of construction lately. With the new summer storm season starting shortly, it's probably a wise idea.
It's too easy to spend time in the future worrying about what's just around the corner. But "spending time" is a misnomer: we cannot spend what we don't have.
Maybe one day we'll figure out how to time travel. When that happens, will we be in a memory or a moment?
In our minds, we time-travel quite a lot. The irony is, it wastes time. I've heard and read that time is an illusion, something in our minds. Not being in the present is like a treadmill that never stops. Maybe it's better to just try and be present in the moment.
