I live in Athens, basically in the center of the city.
I’m lucky enough to live in an apartment, where I can see nature from my balcony. My view is that of other flats and their gardens.
And most important of all, is that right in front of my balcony there are a couple of trees that my great-grandfather had planted, when the family’s house was still in this location.
It feels so precious to look at these trees and know that a member of your family planted them, decades before! It’s a special connection.
Like the one I have with nature, when even though I live in a big city, in the center of it, I can sit on my balcony and be a meter (max. two) away from birds, flying, singing and eating the fruits that great-grandpa planted!
Hey there, birdy!
