There is always a slight pain and joy when I utter those words 'I'm out of here' which indeed I am for a few weeks. The need for warmth and to replenish my photo stocks of Crete has become to great and so I'm off back to the beautiful Island of Crete! One of these days I'll manage to go somewhere else but for now I don't think this will do me any harm. I have to say my hayfever is not a problem there so I look forward to a slightly easier time with regard to that and as the English summer seems to have dissolved these last 2 years, (if in fact we ever had one) this seems to be the only way to guarantee some sun. I think if my memory serves me right we had a nice summer in 1976. We must be due another soon!

As always my base will be the beautiful mountain village of Kritsa (Κριτσά). Here is a map of where I am located, the little marker is just about where the house is. That's you looking at me and here is what I see looking towards the sea.

If you fancy some film goodness whilst I am away then you can do no better than popping over in the direction of the Filmwasters Blog. The images change there every day and you can access all of the blogs and sites via the images. Hell, if it's a little community that you are after then why not joint the Filmwasters Forum. A more positive thing you'd be hard pressed to do if film is your bag. Not into film?....well they may tempt you back from the dark side.

ok today's photo is another interior from Arnikou (Αρνικού) in the village of Kalo Xorio (Καλό Χωριό). An interior that I have photographed before buity this is a slightly different angle on it. I didn't on the previous occasion thank Lydia for access so I shall on this one. A village in which the old and derelict houses seem to be gradually being bought up and renovated by the British much to the dismay of many of it's inhabitants! In the process much of the charm of the village is being lost. I'm sure the interest is due to it's proximity to the coast. Anyway this property was rather charming and seemed to possess all manner of complex spirits! As to it's location, here is an aerial view of the area which almost pinpoints it.

darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
hopeful embraces
don't you understand?
i have to go through this
i belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and hurting stops

it's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

i play dead
it stops the hurting

Listening to: "Play Dead" (Debut) - Björk
