Something Greek

Greece has long cast a spell on me that I don’t want ever to break. I can’t think of what used to be my home without tearing up.

Bellow is the the bust of Athina, the goddess of wisdom, also known as Pallas and here’s a song, a very old song by Giannis Poulopoulos. love the lyrics and the music. I guess i am feeling quite nostalgic today:

The song is called Gyftissa Mera, (Gypsy Day), or as i used to call it, aspra votsala (while pebbles). It talks about the day that has left him with a feeling of loss as he watches over the sea. Image
