Destination... parapera market! (just a week before I leave)

...but before I leave for Sifnos, I have another commitment.

I'm going to work for a week for these guys. Is is a kind of market. I haven't seen it yet, but it looks interesting.

It's really refreshing to be needed, to be appreciated as a team member in a work environment. It's really refreshing to know that some people still work, still create, still hope, in a country where everything seems lost.

I think that this country is going to be saved by creativity. New ideas and new spirits. Don't just sit in your couch and wait for doomsday. Get out. Talk with people. Share your ideas. Help your friends. Have a good day.

Destination... Sifnos!

I have been waitning to announce this big surprise till I was a hundred percent sure...

I've got a job in Sifnos. A small shop, with clothes,  jewllery and small objects is waiting for me.

In two weeks, on the 6th of June, we are packing our bags. My man and I, Freeda and Michelangelo, the canary are moving to Sifnos for three months. The cat is going to stay behind to watch the house.

Of course I have the usual butterflies, I worry about everything, I make disaster plans in my head most of the time, I think there is not enough time to prepare everything... the-usual-control-freak: me.

Of course everything is going to be fine, whether I worry or not...

Athens is going to kiss me goodbye with it's usual Jazz Festival, which starts today.

Back in the winter, when things were stressful, I kept my good spirits. I looked at what I have. I was greatful for what I had. I see this change as a result of the way I kept thinking.

Have a good day.

My projects, my dreams...

Let me talk to you about two projects I'm involved with and hope they take me where I need to be.

The first one is called Hopeland.
The webstite is in greek, but I hope there's going to be an english version too. It's Erato's dream, a land where children and adults will be taught to live near nature. A self-sustainable place where all beings will have a chance to heal in many ways.

The second one is Travel and Do.
A team of people who believe there is another kind of tourism, which respects nature and visitors.

All the people involved in these projects, are people of the heart. The have strong visions like me. They love and respect themselves. They want to make a change. They are commited to help others. I am proud to have met them. I am proud to be part of their dreams.

have a good day.

Did you miss me?

I'm sure you didn't. I was out of internet and out of inspiration.

On the 10th of May, this blog had it's first birthday. I did not even notice...

When I started, I thought I'm going to write every day and I will always have interesting and exhiting things to say! But life is not like a fairytale. At least not always.

The past year was full of exhitement, adventures, horses, dogs, cats and travelling...

This past winter was difficult, but now the summer is in my doorstep with lots of exhiting news. A new internet connection. A prospect to work on an island this summer.

To be continued...
