Forests. Growing up, I had never really thought a lot about them.
I like open spaces; beaches, the sea, mountains with far sights and clear skies. And I never hugged a tree as a child either. I did climb in them, but only for the sights I could see from a higher vantage point.
In school they taught us about the Amazon in Brazil; the "lungs of our earth." They had to be saved. But those were different – they were “special forests.” Not like the family olive trees I grew up with in Crete.
