Isn’t it curious that the loss of a tree in a park, Gezi Park, and rumors of a new shopping center erupted into a huge series of protests in Istanbul?
Not surprising if you ask the question:
How many of us, city dwellers, have safe and easy walks to inspirational gardens and landscapes?
People can only live so long in cities without refreshing and inspirational gardens and landscapes…then they erupt. People erupt due to a fundamental imbalance in their living conditions. Fix your city, fix your neighborhood, before the eruption.
