Enemy/Εχθρός

Noenemies

The lines have been drawn

The walls have been built

The enemy puffs at the gate

Forever lingering like a loyal dog

The bear, the shark, the snake, and black dog

All symbolize

The enemy, the  foe, the rival

They Claw,

Gnash with their teeth,

 Slither and howl

The tides of hate flow

Back and forth

And in a stormy black sea

 A lonely boat with a white flag

 Pleads for peace

But goes unheard

 Just muffled cries in the dark

Who will win, who will lose

It won’t matter

It will never end.

 

4oo followers!?! WOW!!!!!!Thank you for not being my enemy! 🙂

 


The Bridge/Η ΓΕΦΥΡΑ

corinth bridge

Καλό μήνα! (Kalo Mena) translates to ‘happy first day of the month’ as we like to say in Greece.

A different perspective of the Corinth canal bridge. Not sure why there are plastic bags there!

Μια διαφορετική προοπτική της γέφυρας του καναλιού της Κορίνθου. Δεν είμαι σίγουρη γιατί υπάρχουν πλαστικές σακούλες εκεί!

 

November Rain

The month of November has long been the rainiest month in Greece. But, the rare ‘medicane’ (mediterranean + hurricane) that enveloped Greece this past Wednesday brought catastrophic flooding that took the lives of 21+ people, (many more have not been accounted for), and hundreds of people have been left homeless. This is the worst flooding Athens has seen in decades and it has left the country in a state of shock.

Global natural disasters are increasing by the day and whatever the cause, that fact is that we live in an unstable planet. Like our ancestors we have to adapt to the changes and continue to rebuild again. My sympathies and condolences to anyone who has lost someone to anyone who has lost a loved one the flooding, earthquakes and fires in recent times.

The ruins of the sanctuary of Hera Akraia Limenia, is located at a beautiful cove with a magestic view of the gulf of Corinth. ‘Akraia’ means ‘great height’ and ‘Limenia’ means ‘of the harbour’.  Akraia was also the name of the naiad or water nymph associated with Hera. The site had an L shaped stoa, temple, hearth and sacred pool where visitors would cleanse themselves before entering the temple. There was a dining area that was exclusive to the wealthy. Sailors would stop by the harbour to come on the harbour  to pray, give offerings and make sacrifices to the goddess for their safe travels.
