I spent the last 10 days in Greece and arrived home yesterday. I was in Athens and on a beautiful little island called Agistri which was an hour from the city by boat. It was my second time in Greece. When I went last year I started to learn a few words and this time I had a little vocabulary, maybe 100 words or more...

One day we'll all have a babel fish and communication will be so easy. Although maybe that wouldn't be perfect because learning languages is so much fun. When I went to Greece recently I started by working out the letters from maths. It was like you say, like deciphering a code!

I was overwhelmed when I was confronted by these suspended fragmentary sculptures in the archaeology museum in Athens last year and remembered to post these pictures today because I'm going back there soon. I haven't travelled since Spring last year and I feel so something-or-other (I can't think what word.. glad, grateful?) to be

Thanks to your posts on the debt crisis I read the Current Affairs group. I really hate austerity measures.

The human race is capable of creating such beauty--art, poetry, music--that is can cause the soul to weep unabashed tears! When I lived in Turkey in the early '80's, and in Germany in the early '90's, I spend long hours over many many day exploring long abandoned sites, the usual tourists attractions,  and museums marveling at man's creations.  Now my traveling days are waning and I envy you...but am gladdened that we can will get the chance to experience these wonders through your eyes, words, and lens! Happy travels @annalee  

This was a walk I went on the other day, I felt like I was in heaven. I was in fact. I've walked around this hill hundreds of times but still feel like I found new routes and paths. It's not all that big but once you get there it seems to grow and grow. I came to a little peak and climbed

Beautiful.

Thank you so much for your sweet words about my cat disappearing. She came back this morning smelling very strange so I imagine she had been stuck somewhere small and damp for those 3 days! If only we knew what those little creatures got up to.. So glad she's home. Hope you are all well :-) xx

I rather like the fact that the site automatically inserts the day as the title when one does not provide a title. And, as @ferkixlll says, there's a lovely dhyana to blankness.

I totally get how seven people could be so enraptured by the glamour you cast to hit the "like" button even if you posted a picture of something unsavory, or even a post of no content (I had to check to make sure I hadn't been one of them, but I am regaining my composure after a long period of shamefully uncontrollable Annalee worship, so it turns out I managed to not "like" nothing)

@unknownmisery I believe in Bach! And the wonder of music and the universe and the part we play in it!

I was listening to the Cantatas just the other day:)

Too cool and soooo true!
