High And Dry With No Way Out. Gournes (Γούρνες, Κρήτη) Crete

Well I was like a bloody dead thing this morning, I stayed up way too late which normally would have been fine but the lack of processing success meant I went to bed unhappy with the posting so I'm sure that contributed to my tiredness and general lack of oomph! I have to say my mood didn't change all day although I did knuckle down and re-process the images I had deleted and they seem to have worked out OK. Note to self don't deal with that kind of shit when tired...it always goes bad!
On top of all that I had my fortnightly ass licking trip to the social security where for absolutely nothing...yes they do it for free, I get to be belittled and talked down to my a lad younger than my son and joy of joy be offered a host of jobs that pay minimum wage and probably involve me dressing up in a green chequed pair of dungarees and I think if my memory serves me right they all involved at least 2 bus journeys...hell I need to wast the fucking money that I will be earning on something....and if I'm lucky I'll get one day off! I tried to tell him in as polite a way as possible that I wasn't suited to these positions and probably be a good idea to let me know in advance if this was all he had to offer me so that I could have a frontal lobotomy before attending! For some reason he seemed to be taking it all very seriously. It's not as if they give me money or anything...all this just to make sure my old age pension is paid at 65.....I'm tempted to tell them to stick it up their ass and spend the next 16 years drinking myself to death At this moment sticking pins in my eyes seems more attractive than my visits there!

I guess one positive from today was that I eventually got my ass in gear and went for a Greek lesson. It's odd, you think stuff hasn't stuck as I haven't really studied for about 6 months in any serious way but I was pleasantly surprised how much I did remember. If I can busy my mind with that perhaps....well who knows, I might start having something positive to say. :)

As for today's photo....well it's another from the derelict pool that is next to the almost secret American base. This pool is enormous with no shallow end or any easy means of entry...I guess being full of water would make it easier but I would think parents would have never relaxed as it seems about 12 feet deep in all directions. It's only a spit from the sea as well so lots of competition there. Anyway, shots of the base to follow when I have remastered the art of post processing! Here is an aerial view. The pool photographed here you can see in the centre of the photo, the American base, now derelict is to the left.

OK I thought a little blatant self promotion was in order, so I have posted a photo over at JPG Mag if you dig it then tell them!

BBC correspondent Alan Johnston was abducted in Gaza on 12th March 2007. Why not sign the Petition in the hope that it will assist with his early release.

The sad irony of Love is how so seldom you feel it,
yet it's all you dream about, night and day.
