I forget the name of the Turkish gentleman to whom this car belonged, but apparently, he and his wife go back and forth to Austria and just leaves his 1962 Fiat in this same spot all the time. He congratulated Leah and I on getting married and even let me take his portrait.

Hiking in the mountains, I am reminded of how minute I am in the midst of creation. But sitting on these Lycian ruins, reflection shifts from being a speck in space to being a blip in time. God has no beginning or end. His love endures forever.
