Anniversaries In Kendri (Κεντρί, Κρήτη) Crete

Death always seems to be well advertised in the villages of Crete. When ever there has been a death or as in the case of these two posters reminding us of a certain period of time has elapsed siince the death. Here it would appear to be 40 days and 6 months, they appear all over the village. Death does appear to be very public, I can't speak for other places but it certainly isn't that way where I live. I certainly like the way they deal with it in Crete, it seems more matter of fact and all are involved.

Not sure how this will read, I am a little pissed off as I have just spent ages writing the above only for it all to be deleted when I clicked post! It's same when emails disappear your heart is never in it the second time around. Anyway, the weather is set fair yet cool here the weekend so I am hoping to get out there with a camera and capture the fading summer. I hope your weekend goes just the way you want it to.
