She Comes Alive/Ζωντανεύει

Happy new month!

Καλό μήνα!

‘Today is the first of August. It is hot, steamy and wet. It is raining. I am tempted to write a poem. But I remember what it said on one rejection slip: ‘After a heavy rainfall, poems titled ‘Rain’ pour in from across the nation.’ Sylvia Plath

It was a nice day for a trip down town. It was a warm week before the winter chill came back again.

Ήταν μια ωραία μέρα για μια βολτα στο κέντρο της πόλης. Ήταν μια ζεστή εβδομάδα λιγο πριν το κρύο ερθει ξανα.

It’s October which means it’s time for some pomegranate picking. This delicious fruit originated in Iran and Northern India and has been cultivated in Greece since ancient times. It is a fruit that is very significant in Greek culture and mythology. In ancient Greece the fruit was called  the ‘fruit of the dead’. It is the fruit of Persephone, who was trapped in the underworld was only allowed to eat Pomegranate seeds.  Interesting enough the pomegranate is still associated with the dead. In Greece today the seeds are  included in a dish called ‘Kolliva’. This dish is served on the day of the memorials of the deceased or on religious events like ‘Soul Saturday.’ It contains ingredients such as wheat, flour, sugar, raisins, walnuts etc.

The pomegranate fruit is also symbolic of abundance, fertility and good luck. It is categorized as a berry and it has anti-inflammatory effects, it can lower blood pressure and many other ailments. You can drink it as a juice or just eat the seeds.

This is one of my favourite quotes. It really caught my attention. I love it because it is so positive, hopeful and truthful. The darkness should never win;  it fears the light. There is so much light in the world even if we can’t see it.

Oil & Water/ Λαδι και Νερο

Oil and water may not mix, but for a photograph, they make a perfect combination.

Το  λάδι  και το νερό μπορεί να μην αναμειγνύονται, αλλά για μια φωτογραφία, κάνουν έναν τέλειο συνδυασμό.
