Thursday Doors

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

A few more photos from my trip. These are from MESTA, a fourteenth century village on the small island of Chios, in Greece with a population of about 430 people. You can read more about it here in an article in a Greek newspaper. And here from the tourist office.

I guess this is one of the labyrinth I was reading about in a description
This one has seen some life.
I think I was more in love with the knobs than the door…couldn’t tell what the material was on that.
Some work was being done here.
I really like this one!

Still trying to figure out what was going on up there with that lamp.

This is for Thursday Doors over at No Facilities with Dan. To participate or see other doors go here.




from the shoulders of ancestors, our elders tell their truths

incidentally – with purpose, without judgement

giving voice to a history

awash in wisdom –

this oral narrative

this homage to lineage –

the unheralded wind beneath all of our wings

unvarnished, at times colorful truths

as we gather together on this day



A passing-

without warning

this unexpected loss –

an early december

This was read at the eulogy today. I am not sure if this belonged to the person who read it or if it was borrowed. In any case, it was fitting:-

“laugh when you can

cry when you must

apologize when you should and change the sphere of life if you will

dream big

take risks

study life’s plays feverishly

make the play

score the goal

volunteer your time

mend broken hearts

fall down but get up and learn from your mistakes

live life on purpose for a purpose and with purpose each and every day”

Giggly Swirl

at the whim of morning winds

fallen leaves in giggly swirl

splashes of color then move

in a lazy sway



Saw this on my morning walk.
