“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein _ Is this a miracle? _ The Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico was built between 1873-1878. The French architect seemed to overlook one important feature – access to the elevated choir loft. After the architect suddenly died a mysterious carpenter arrived in town and offered to build a staircase. Using non-native wood, crude tools and warm water he built a helix-shaped staircase with no nails, no glue and no centre support – defying all engineering logic. As soon as the project was finished he disappeared without asking for payment and was never seen again. _ Many witnesses, upon seeing the staircase, feel it was constructed by St. Joseph himself, as a miraculous occurrence. _ Do you think it’s a miracle? ✨ #santafe _ I’m grateful for the miracle of wireless internet access wherever we go on our road trip thanks to @tepwireless πŸ™πŸ“±
