The photo, well it is a little detail from the place I stay whilst in Crete. On the last trip I realised I had been promising myself for many visits to try and take photos of the place before it looks like a dump. Of course this shows you nothing in any real sense, just a small section of the top floor. To the right is the kitchen and through the doors I look out at this and the sea beyond. If you want to gaze down on me here is an aerial shot of Kritsa (Κριτσά).
Said of Kritsa (Κριτσά) but not by me. Since at least pre-Minoan times, the village of Kritsά has been continuously inhabited. It was reckoned to be in its prime during the Byzantine years. The Arabs devastated it in 823 A.D. and it was rebuilt in 961A.D. Its peak growth was reached during the Frankish period in the 13th and 14th century. It used to be the largest village in Crete during the middle ages. In 1867, it became the headquarters of the municipality which included Krousta, Prina, Kalo Horio, Mardati, Aghios Nikolaos, Mesa Lakonia and Tapes. In 1925 it had its own community, but since 1998 it has comprised one of the 14 precincts of the Municipality of Aghios Nikolaos.

It is said
that you cannot be found
under rocks or broken skull
I will lay down
I will lay down
I can be found beneath the rose
beneath the rose
alone

Safe to say
that I'll never be found
broken bones holding loose
you will be crowned
you will be crowned
queen of all you have found
you have found
alone

It is said
that you cannot be found
under rocks or broken skull
I will lay down
I will lay down
I can be found beneath the rose
beneath the rose
alone
