Perhaps because I was always so busy. Perhaps because I always needed to respond to an email immediately. Or a telephone that rang non-stop. Perhaps because I was concerned about updating my social media statuses. And what was happening in the online lives of others. Or pleasing others. Perhaps that’s why I failed to notice the beauty around me.
But thankfully, oh thank goodness, I’ve recognized this. And I’ve decided to switch off.
Or I may have missed this gorgeous view. A monastery perched high above the river, seeming to be clinging to the cliff.
And after a climb to the top, the frescoes inside the cave-like church were just as breath-taking.
The Sumela Monastery in northeastern Turkey. A must-see!
