They Were All Working Towards The Same End. Lithines(Λιθίνες, Κρήτη) Crete.

So tired. Been out with my mate Dan...always makes me laugh like a drain. So basically it comprised of drink and poking fun at people around us which is always fun...I always work on the assumption that they are taking the piss out of me....doesn't seem so bad then....and in any case no damage if they don't know. We also spoke of some possible photographic work...but being superstitious I won't tell until it happens...so watch this space. I'll shut up there as I am 3 parts pissed and 9 parts asleep.

OK, more from Crete. Don't ask me what this structure is! It is made from hexagonal pieces of concrete that had glass or mirrored glass on the surface. It has been terribly vandalised with most of the glass having been smashed. I am assuming that it was for collecting solar energy or something. A large concrete bowl shaped object aimed at the sun...obviously unsuccessful. An odd place that I think I have found on the map! Close to the village of Lithines (Λιθίνες) here is an aerial view.

Could you grow a new heart
And could you run the distance
In the time that it takes
Before it all fell apart?

We fell through the cracks
Stole the sheets and burned the maps
Watched the smoke flying from the stacks
Before it all fell apart

Particles on the fringe
There's a heaviness, this stillness brings
Those twisted palms, oh how they swing
Telling tales, young breathless things

Things that move on
Left wandering where the mystery's gone
