To excite us, things generally have to be pretty big. Shows stand out by being big productions, events that attract a staggering amount of people seem the most impressive, and I strongly suspect that a lot of people prefer Chicago-style pizza purely because of its gargantuan size.
But at the same time, they always say that it's the little things in life that can make a real difference for us. If we take the time to notice them, we can feel a serene sense of satisfaction that just hits differently from the big, exciting stuff in our lives.
And while the sights we're about to see might not literally be small in stature, they achieve that pleasant feeling all the same.
