A few more pictures from Greece

REMINDER: The word of the month for October is CAT. Have we no cat lovers among us ready to immortalize their favorite cat? Hmmm?

Hi everyone,

Before the memories of our recent visit to Greece begin to begin to fade, I’d like to share a few more pictures. Dining with friends (Mary Jo and Hank Fresch) with a wall of the Acropolis at your back is a good way to start a trip. With history rising up behind us, we look out over modern Athens.
Every horizon offers other islands, other mysteries. From Athens to Mykonos by boat we traveled five hours over calm, blue water. It was a very nice boat. Well, you know me and sunsets. Morning coffee at Santorini. On a late evening stroll we passed this calm little hedgehog. Greece protects them.

Part of the original entrance to Athens. Statues rescued from crumbling temples. That’s the Parthenon, folks!! And this is four tired but satisfied people enjoying good wine, company, and food with a million dollar view.

    • David, every time the WOM of the month is started the poems sent to you the day before are left in that comments section. I try to click on the WOM tab at the top on your site to add mine instead of in the comments the day before. Yours is left out also. You included it in the notice of the word “cat” and yours and Jane’s got left there.

      • Jeanne, my end of the month practice of deleting the month’s accumulation of poems and comments sometimes doesn’t happen until the next day. Depends on my schedule. The task doesn’t take forever but it does take a while. I apologize if this occasionally leads to “leftovers” and I’ll try to do better. Thanks for reminding me. What would I do without you!

  1. You and Sandy should do traveling with friends more often. You both look so relaxed and happy. Blessings.

    • Thank you, Joy. The was the longest I’ve gone without writing something in many years. Focusing on having fun was a good exercise. Being with great friends made a lot of difference!

  2. Greece is great
    so I’ve been told,
    Walking ‘mongst
    things cool and old!

    Exploring there
    with eyes and tongue,
    makes us realize
    we’re still young!

  3. What a swellegant foreign adventure you had! And I’m happy to see that your M.O.W. looks to have been having a fine old time.

    • Good morning, Mary Nida. I create a file for each project (book) plus three general files: one for unpublished poems for children, one for poems that feel more appropriate for adults, and one where I keep some of the poems I’ve posted on the blog. There may be a better way but this usually works fairly well for me.
