Stormy Days/Θυελλώδεις Μέρες

StormycloudsStormyclouds2IMG_4443

Greece got another taste of winter this past week. There is snow on Parnitha mountain! Shockingly unusual weather for the month of April.  I believe it is God’s wrath. He is avenging the crazies who went to the beach in March during the quarantine. And now we all have to suffer and listen to the gale force-7 or 9 Beaufort winds.

I bet God said (while looking down at us) ‘If you don’t stay inside than I’ll mess with the weather so badly you will be forced to stay in. I’ll make it so windy that if you set foot -even one foot-outside you will be blown away!

This is an incredible inspiring video that helps put things into perspective. Our ancestors had it A LOT worse than us. Terrible things have happened before and the will happen again. It is crucial in times like these to remain calm and to be strong.

Light and Dark/Φως και Σκοταδι

I love it when the sky gives us these colours.

LIGHT AND DARK

The pain masquerades as joy

A party turns to drama

How quickly the light can switch

How a pretty face can turn ugly

A soft voice to cacophony

Snow covered mountains to avalanches

Gentle waves to tsunami

The never ending cuts and burns

That will heal again..

Happy Chinese New Year!

Passing Through/Διέρχεται

The smell of rain in the summer air       Η μυρωδιά της βροχής στον καλοκαιρινό αέρα

   everything is changing                                        όλα αλλάζουν

         the sky rages                                                ο ουρανός μαίνεται

     the ground shakes                                         το έδαφος κουνιέται

   unstable mother earth                                       ασταθής γη

      angry since birth.                                   θυμωμένη από τη γέννηση της.

Big marshmallow man.

A few photos of a cloudy day and rainy August day in Greece. The photos have an ‘instant’ style filter.

Nephophilia: a person who loves clouds; a fondness or obsession with clouds.

Μερικές φωτογραφίες μιας συννεφιασμένη και βροχερή ημέρα του Αυγούστου στην Ελλάδα. Οι φωτογραφίες έχουν φίλτρο “instant” (άμεσου) στυλ.

Νεφοφιλία: ένα άτομο που αγαπά τα σύννεφα, μια συμπάθεια ή εμμονή με τα σύννεφα.

While the rest of Europe is still in the ice age, Athens is enjoying some great early spring weather. I’m not bragging 😉

Ενώ η υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη βρίσκεται ακόμα στην  εποχή των παγετώνων, η Αθήνα απολαμβάνει εξαιρετικές πρώιμες ανοιξιάτικες καιρικές συνθήκες.

“It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are…than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.” Henry David Thoreau (American Author)

Είναι καλύτερα να έχεις το κεφάλι σου στα σύννεφα και γνωρίζεις πού είσαι από το να αναπνεύσεις την σαφέστερα ατμόσφαιρα κάτω από αυτά, και να νομίζεις ότι είσαι στον παράδεισο.”-Ηενρυ Δαβιδ Θορω (Αμερικανός Συγγραφέας)
