“The boy began to dig into the dune. As he did so, he thought of what the crystal merchant had once said: ‘that anyone could build a pyramid in his backyard.’ The boy could see now that he couldn't do so if he placed stone upon stone for the rest of his life.

Throughout the night, the boy dug at the place he had chosen, but found nothing. He felt weighted down by the centuries of time since the Pyramids had been built. But he didn't stop. He struggled to continue digging as he fought the wind, which often blew the sand back into the excavation. His hands were abraded and exhausted, but he listened to his heart. It had told him to dig where his tears fell.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

In The Alchemist Santiago the shepherd finds himself “weighted down by the centuries.”  This feeling as he dug through the night in search of his treasure highlights the humanity of the past decisions to journey from Spain, across the desert, to the Pyramids in Egypt.  Dirty, cold, and alone in the middle of the night, Santiago’s past decisions to follow the signs had brought him to the Pyramids of Egypt.

Journey far,
