This disruption to my posting routine isn't without it's problems I have to say. Kind of reminds me back in the day when I was a marathon runner of types. As long as I was training every day I was focussed and didn't really question the routine of it all. As soon as I took a day off or eased up in any way it seemed infinitely easier to miss another day and before I knew it I wasn't running any more. Upsetting my routine of posting which has been done for specific reasons seems to hold the same dangers. I guess at least I have noted it and want to post so hopefully it won't happen. If I slack in any real way please feel free to try and kick me up the ass. I'm not saying it will work but I promise to thank you for trying!

Today's image is another from the Minoan Prince Hotel and one of the few I have taken with the Hasselblad SWC. Having said that I did take a few more on the last trip to try and redress the balance. Obviously not long out of business but already fading fast. I was surprised to find that there is still a website in existence for it! Take a look here at the home page and see the hotel in it's former glory! Call me weird but I kind of preferred how I found it...gracefully decaying. It looked as if it had been closed for ages but the web page suggests otherwise. For those of you with an interest here is an aerial view as well. A return visit at some stage I would think!

She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles that weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that she almost married
What would he think if he saw her this way?

She picks up her apron in little girl-fashion as something comes into her mind
Slowly starts dancing rememb'ring her girlhood
And all of the boys she had waiting in line

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see ev'rywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

The photograph album she takes from the closet and slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
The first one he gave her now withered today

She closes her eyes and touches the house dress that suddenly disappears
And just for the moment she's wearing the gown
That broke all their minds back so many years

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see ev'rywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me
