Saturday was heat and sun today is cloud, rain and heat. At least for now we are getting heat so I am safe in my shorts for the time being. I usually manage to November but I am having serious doubts this year. Perhaps some collective positive thought and love from all of you might help the situation, who knows, lets give it a try.
I have no idea what happened this morning, it's Sunday and I was rather hoping to spend a few hours in a hypnagogic state. Cool word eh? Discovered it this morning, no longer do you have to languish in bed half asleep and half awake feeling guilty. Now you have a really cool word to describe what you are up to and so it's almost like you are conducting research.

So the photo and a return to the village of Kato Horio (Κάτω Χωριό). I did photograph this places years ago with no knowledge that this was an old pharmacy. So when I tried to get in on this visit I was overjoyed with what I found. The main store was the most exciting with all its wonderful bottles and medicines. But the rest of the building was also great with diaries and pharmaceutical books lying around. Damn it was hot in there - I think I shall have to return at some stage and rescue some of those wonderful bottles - after I have taken more shots of course. Map? Well here is an aerial view of Kato Horio (Κάτω Χωριό). Sorry I can't tell you exactly where the place is...I haven't finished as yet!

Way down south I know a girl who is blind.
She walks alone along a lonely highway each day.
She dreams that one day a man will pull up in a car.
He’ll open up the door, she’ll climb in and he will say:
“Hey babe, whatcha know? Hope you’re ready to go...
’cause today’s a perfect day
to chase tornados.”
Yeah when the wild wind whips around your head you know,
that you have found a perfect day to chase tornados.

And what about that preacher man on the run from the law?
He killed a girl in Memphis and ran ’till the dogs tracked him down.
They shot him by the river and as he lay dying in the mud,
well someone asked him, hey Preacher, where’s your soul going now?
And Preacher said, “Well, I do not know, but wherever it is I’ll gladly go...
cause today’s a perfect day
to chase tornados.”
Yeah when the wild wind kicks around your head you know,
that you have found a perfect day to chase tornados.

Sometimes I think that the sky is a prison and the earth is a grave.
And sometimes I feel like Jesus, in some Chinese opera.
And sometimes I’m glad I built my mansion from crazy little stones.
But sometimes I feel so goddamned trapped by everything that I know.
And I wish it wasn’t so, cause the only thing that anyone should ever know
is that today’s a perfect day
to chase tornados.
Yeah, when the wild wind whips around your head you know,
that you have found a perfect day to chase tornados.
