A Walk in the Forest

IMU_7924Recently in search of ancient aqueducts and crumbling city walls we roamed the forested areas of the Thracian side of Istanbul.  It was a wonderfully successful day with great weather and good company.

Trees

bIMS_9163d “Trees are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves.”
Hermann Hesse
