Well I gingerly swung my legs out of bed this morning. I was half expecting my body to be frozen rigid from hedge cutting yesterday. It was the first bought of trimming of the year, I have been dragging my ass over it and it has rained a lot. Now either I am incredibly fit and agile for my age or I'm a lazy ass as I don't ache when I should I suspect the latter and that I didn't cut enough of them! As I speak it is bloody raining again so they will have to wait for another day. The battle with keeping the slugs and snails off of my Hostas is well under way. At present I seem to be winning which is a surprise given the dampness at present but I'll need to keep me wits about me as a moments distraction could be fatal! I am using chemicals as well...yeah, yeah, I know there are probably disapproving shakes of the head going on but I need assistance with it....I can't be here all the damn time, I do need to go to Crete every now and again.

And speaking of Crete that's where this is from. An alternative viewpoint of a scene I posted a few weeks ago. Taken in the mountain village of Skinias (Σκυνιάς). It's been a few years since I dropped by the village. The last time there we were invited into a blacksmiths workshop and treated to a great time. Not so this time but it was great wandering the back streets.Here's an aerial view. I do have others from this village which I will post as and when.

I came out from under her warm sheets
Into the brisk late October
If only for one last hope
I wanted my time with you to be over

I'm staring up into the sky
While all the raining is pouring down
I'm reaching out for your help
But evil beings hold me backwards

All shapes and shadows move in and out
And hover round my bed
Voices arrive and disappear
I want to talk to them

Darkness disintegrates
I'm rising; I'm rising toward a light
A light leading over hills and meadows
