One Room Living At Its Finest. Finokalia (Φινοκαλιά, Κρήτη) Crete

Something of a nightmare weekend in a nice sort of way. A new computer arrived and so I have been struggling to get everything from the old to the new and get it to work to my satisfaction. Add to that my having to get my head around windows 7 - fortunately I have been alone all weekend so have been able to spend as much time as was needed to sorting it - still a ways to go, but, at least I can post from it and adjust photos etc.

More from the recent trip to Crete and a return to this achingly beautiful little house I stumbled accross in the village of Finokalia (Φινοκαλιά). A tiny village up in the hills that I have driven through more times than I care to remember. It always seemd to have promise, but, I never managed to find anything of interest until this trip. I guess all it takes is one house and this one was just perfect. Anyway, I'm sure that you will see at least a couple more of this room as that's all it was, one room - one room living at its most lovely. For those with an interest here is an aerial shot of Finokalia (Φινοκαλιά) and the surrounding area.

You never hear me talk about one day getting out
Why put a new address on the same old loneliness
Everybody knows where that is
We built that house of his
And when he’s not home
Someone else you know always is
If Heaven’s really coming back
I hope it has a heart attack
When they see how dangerous it is for guys like that
The night has always known when it’s time to get going
When it’s really been so long that it starts showing
It’s always had that ghost who always almost
Tells me the Secret
How there’s really no difference in who he was once
And who he’s become
Everything you hated me for… Honey there was so much more
I just didn’t get busted.
But I’m not looking for an easy way out
This whole life it’s been about
Try and try and try
And try and try and try
To be simple again

Listening to: "Just Be Simple" (Magnolia Electric Co.) - Songs: Ohia
