My Little Piece Of Paradise In Kritsa (Κριτσά, Κρήτη) Crete

How was the weather with you guys? Basically they lied to us, I was all primed for Saturday being sunny and it was wall to wall cloud. Black as your hat! I was well pissed. Sunday was a little better so I took myself to the seaside....ah the great British seaside in winter is a wonderful place. Amusement arcades still cranking it out, people with no money spending the money they don't have on machines that promise them the world. Kids screaming because they can't have what they want. Empty beaches, cafes full of old people....I love it! I had forgotten just how much I love it in fact.....I must do it more often.

Today's post is slightly self indulgent (so please forgive me). From Crete, so what's new I hear you say! Well I wanted to try and show what drives me back there time after time. Yes the weather is great most of the time but it's much more than that. This shot is part of it. This is what I see from the window when I wake. Nothing but the sound of barking dogs and other mostly animal sounds. Other than that just the sound of the wind blowing through the trees. Olives almost as far as the eye can see.....a glimmer of the sea in the distance and then beyond that mountains that are snow capped in winter. It's a place where life means something else, the stuff that seems to dominate my life isn't there....the list of things I WANT doesn't exist, there is no big consumer hole trying to suck me in. I can look someone in the eye and not worry that a punch or worst will follow and I can leave my wallet on a table and come back the next day to probably find all of it still there. Is it paradise?.....Hell no, if it was I'd live there...I'm not stupid but it is one of the many little bits of paradise that make up my life.

Hey guys, don't forget to check out toy polloy it's going to be a blast. I also have it on good authority that the coolest of people will be there. If you are into plastic and have the time and the money go...be inspired. November 17th in Lexington, Kentucky.
