Like a rock band...

What can I say, after 2 months of absence from blogging, after 2 months that were full of all kinds of things and emotions, including a fire that destroyed half the island of Chios... I've missed you...

So, we're back in Athens, and from our 2 years living in Chios, hoping for a better future, what I hold on to in my heart is this picture from August, nature and our kitties, the yard and the sky... the smell of the mastic trees and the sea... 

I leave behind the frustration, the disappointment and the smell of the burnt earth, the black scenery where green used to be, our efforts that were detsroyed by that witless boy who was feeding the fire again and again...

My thoughts are back to the island and to the people who lost their lives labors, to the people that are still there, because that is the only life they ever knew...

So, back in Athens, with our kitties, starting all over again with new hopes and dreams...After all, the best is yet to come...

I'd like to take this oppurtunity to thank all the girls, who were worried about us and tell them that I would have returned their messages earlier, but we had no internet access on account of the fire and we just got it 2 to3 days ago in our house in Athens.

I'd also like to say that I've made a few rings and bracelets, before all the mayhem started, and I will take pictures and show them to you, once we finish putting the house in order.

I wish you all a lovely autumn and I'm closing this post with a greek song "The Applause", which talks about the love two people have for each other despite the obstacles presented to them in their life. In the song refrain, the singer says "and we are still alive, on the music stage, like a rock band... and if the rope is strong enough to keep us going, it will be obvious by the applause at the end"...

Lots of love,
Maria
