Greek the language they gave me...

GREEK the language they gave me;
poor the house on Homer’s shores.
My only care my language on Homer’s shores.

Quite a few times Elytis' "Axion Esti" has been a source of inspiration for me; this time my most favorite verses are in an artist's alphabet book I created, part of a new body of work I am currently developing.

inauguration day


Today was the day dedicated to the magic happening in Washington: Barack Obama's inauguration! There is nothing more inspiring than a new beginning. 
Oh, how I wish I was there...

Sunday we had the 40 day Memorial Service for mama. In the evening we celebrated her memory, life and love at home. All in all a very emotional and truly special day for me.

signs of a normal day...


Perhaps because it's this time of the year, perhaps because of this particular emotional state I've been experiencing since mama's passing, but all of a sudden I have these numerous occasions that "normal" situations, totally ordinary sights make me feel a tremendous, deep and calm joy; this picture shows one of those instances: Phil's crossword puzzle, his book and papers; an off moment in time illustrating a normal day in our lives in this new year: what a gift!!! 
Happy 2009 to all!
