I was given a pocket watch today. It had sat in a box unused for over 50 years. I wound it and it started straight away and is keeping perfect time. My 93 year young mother in law gave it to me, such a small gesture but I will love it for sure. I am hoping that it's tick will rock me to sleep later.
The weather continues to do odd things, still we seem to be getting all seasons in one day...most odd. Snow and hail this morning mixed with sun and warmth! A nice two hour drive to the mother in laws followed by tea and cakes...very civilised I have to say. I'd go for the drive really. I love to drive so any excuse to crawl behind the wheel of a car I'm there. Precious little chance these days.

I was contemplating not posting tonight but then thought what the hell...why not! May leave this one up for a few though. Depends if I get pissed off with it or not. This was taken in the tiny village of Aghios Georgios (Άγιος Γεώργιος) close to the town of Aghios Nikolaos (Άγιος Νικόλαος) it was a village that I visited and photographed a few years ago with 35mm so I thought it would be good to re-visit with the Hasselblad and see what I made of it now. Well the dogs still tried to bite me and it still appeared to be devoid of any human activity even though the signs of habitation were all around me. Perfect conditions if the truth be known...I get to be left alone to shoot...which with me is slow...god am I slow! You wanna see where Aghios Georgios (Άγιος Γεώργιος) is? here is an aerial view of the area.

her tears
fell on her pages found me out
on her words i dont know what
to do or say

wading through
warm canals and pools clear blue
the Tuscarawas flows into
the prairie land

riding back
to where the highway met
dead end tracks
the ground is now cement and glass
and far away

heal her soul, carry her, my angel, ohio
