Greek Sunset~ Travelin' Tuesday

(Photograph copyright: Kirsten Steen)

This sunset walk along my favorite site for strolling
in Nafplion, Greece
makes me think of ancient eyes watching this same dramatic scenery
a thousand years ago.

It must have looked similar~
Even some of the tastes were the same,
the land of golden olive oil and grapey, fermented wines.

I wonder if the sage greenery
and red ochre cliffsides looked the same~
the blue water
like a giant mirror to the stars.


Myths were built amid such beauty~

KIRSTEN! YES, IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG! Oh dear, GREECE, and I love the way you say about ancient eyes seeing all these things...how chilling to think of all the history taking place in really any land we explore...all the lives that have passed by there. THANK YOU FOR COMING TO VISIT ME....I have been drowning in my work as a teacher with 50 students to manage, a new curriculum to learn and parent conferences with 100 parents and trying to keep up with my new found addiction: BLOGGING! Whew....dearest, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season...I will be back and keep a close eye on your blog because I am trying to organize my blogging life! I even try to squeeze in my harp playing now into this wild schedule!

May you have a lovely day dearest! Anita
