SEEING old symbols in new contexts also enlivens! I have long been an admirer of the "evil eye," an amulet that protects its owner from misfortune. Yet to the Cappadocian landscape through a tree draped in evil eye amulets thrilled me! I started seeing multiple hot air balloons drifting in a mini-Cappadocian landscape. I envisioned my thoughts drifting away like hot air balloons with the evil eye on each one!

|CAVE CHURCH ART. I cannot help but make the connection of the hot air balloons in the Cappadocian sky to the heads of these saints as portrayed on the walls of the Cappadocian caves. Do you? (photo by Hallelujah Truth)|

beautiful and exotic, would you think 2 weeks will do a visit to Turkey poetic justice?ReplyDelete
Thanks for your compliment Suizo! My Chiboogamoo and I had only two weeks but felt immersed and satisfied. Of course, if you could stay longer, that would be wonderful. Plan for three days in the Cappadocia region.Delete
Dropped by your blog and like the idea of "absorbing" environments that we inhabit. That is what this blog entry was about.
Happy travels to you!
To answer your question about alien landscapes...I'm in the Portland OR airport reading your blog, waiting for my flight first to Denver, then to Manchester NH and eventually after a 3-hr drive, back to Vermont for the rest of the summer. I'm in a semi-alien set of landscapes. Portland airport (PDX) is wonderfully traveler friendly...lots of outlets, free Wi-fi, 2 great local bookstores on site (Powells), at least 2 Starbucks, and water bottle filling stations at the gate to refill after having to empty the liquids at security in convenient liquid dumping "troughs".ReplyDelete
SEE SEE, leave it you find alien landscapes in airports! You are definitely correct about that! Having just returned from Turkey and many airports including one in Paris and one in Amsterdam, I know what you mean. I loved it that in Amsterdam, the airport had a library! Yes! Not a bookstore but a library.ReplyDelete
