Constantinople -- our favorite photo in some time invoking the love westerners hold for our mystic past in the near east.  There is an amazing wealth found in the mystic Christian literature of the Philokalia unlike most anything found in the west that focuses on the practical aspects on being a faithfilled follower in the world teaching how not to be of the world.
