The Parthenon in Athens, Greece is a site to behold. Five thousand years old! When one stands on this hallowed ground, you cannot believe you are walking in the steps of Socrates, Aristotle and Saint Paul.
Marble is the stone from which the Parthenon is constructed. As time, weather, and millions of visitors have worn down the marble, it is very slippery from dust and sand covering the stone. Signs alert visitors, “Slippery rock; watch your step.
While on the grounds of the Parthenon, I was walking and taking in the site. I stepped over a very low pile of rocks. The bottom of my sneaker slid right down the side of the rock. My feet and legs rose up in the air, and I came right down onto my coccyx on top of stone. I checked my spine, legs and arms before I got up. No damage. I was so thankful as people surrounded me to help me up.
