Thank you for posting this. It is so beautiful! I Love it! ! Beauty is needed, color, joy, love, community; -) Oliver Cromwell with his hatred and suppression of beauty and color is the poster child for the whole hierarchy top down beauracracy miserable money based worldview we are working so hard to break out of as a new butterfly struggles to escape its chrysalis and spread its wings to dry in the sun.

Those walkways generally attract little notice, but that changed last week, when a retired forestry engineer decided to paint the Findikli stairs in the central district of Beyoglu in all the colors of the rainbow — an act of guerrilla beautification that unintentionally triggered a fresh ripple of anti-government protests.



The retiree behind the caper, Huseyin Cetinel, 64, told the local news media that his original motivation for applying a fresh coat of paint to the stairs was not activism, but the desire “to make people smile.” Mr. Cetinel said he spent nearly $800 on paint and devoted four days to sprucing up the stairs, with help from his son-in-law.
