On the "Hold" button...

... during Greek Independence Day. 
Traveling with a dear friend,
a pastoral excursion in the warm light of the Lesvos Spring.
Expecting the atmosphere of celebrating Greeks, 
falling right into an unexpected silence and tranquility.
Everything and everyone holding its breath.
Only the sheep were marching on.

Almost a lifetime...

...friendship. At least as long as a lifetime has been so far for me,
 on the island of Lesvos.
Thanks for dialogues on life and all it´s facets
and for always being there. 
A privilege to know you, friend, for many years to come...

Thank you, children...

... of Molivos and Kalloni,
on the island of Lesvos,
for a great evening with very emotional experiences.
All of us grown ups, who for long have forgotten how it was to be a child,
were watching you, like our parents watched us once upon a time.
We did our best to please them, to be seen and recognized, 
like you are now trying hard to be seen by us.
I saw both you and myself, rest assured...

Winter giving up. Slowly...

...releasing new energies. Still a morning frost, water is cold,
leaving some ice on the lake side,
but the fish is jumping. Lazy day on a rocking pier,
absolute silence in early morning orange red,
 hot coffee in thermos and talks with friends, 
offering their hospitality in the midst of the awkward change of signs of light,
creating fantasies of trolls and animals and fairy tales...
