"The isles of Greece,
the isles of Greece,
where burning Sappho loved and sang"
Sitting on the footsteps
“You have your brush,
you have your colours,
you paint the paradise,
then in you go.”
… the heat is palpable,
as the day shimmers bleached and still,
and colour is deep etched
against a muted sky...
summer has arrived
kissing the curtain
as she enters
"Happy is the man I thought,
has the good fortune to sail the Aegean Sea."
Zorba the Greek
Greece... where the purity of colour and simplicity of line feed the soul...
"Of all the peoples, the Greeks have dreamt the dream of life best"
"Marvellous things happen to one in Greece - marvellous good things which can happen to one nowhere else on earth"
The Colossus of Maroussi
