Day 214 – The Olive Branch

Everywhere you go in Greece you will see Olive trees, in every garden, on the edge of every road and scattered over the hillsides in rows and rows slowly ripening under the blistering sun.

“The whole Mediterranean, the sculpture, the palm, the gold beads, the bearded heroes, the wine, the ideas, the ships, the moonlight, the winged gorgons, the bronze men, the philosophers -all of it seems to rise in the sour, pungent taste of these black olives between the teeth. A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water.” ~ Lawrence Durrell
