Ερωτεύτηκες;

6 Sep

Η πιο ανόθευτη μορφή του έρωτα μπορεί να έρθει μόνο από κάποιο έφηβο αγόρι. Πάντα το πίστευα και ιδού μία επιβεβαίωση.  Ευχαριστώ τον Johnny Kass που το μοιράστηκε. Keep an eye on him! Links στο τέλος του post.

Σε μια νύχτα η ζωή σου αλλάζει. Προσπαθείς να καταλάβεις το νόημα πίσω απο κάθε προηγούμενη κίνηση. Αχρηστεύεις ακοή και όραση και βυθίζεσαι, χωρίς να προσαρμοστείς στο σκοτάδι. Δεν ακούς αλλά μέσα σου ουρλιάζεις τόσο δυνατά! Έχεις κλείσει όλες τις πόρτες έχεις αμπαρώσει κάθε παράθυρο για τόσα χρόνια. Εκείνη τη νύχτα τα αφήνεις όλα ανοιχτά, μιλάς με ειλικρίνεια και δισταγμό. Είσαι παιδί ακομά και φοβάσαι. Δεν θέλεις να χάσεις αλλά μόνο να την κερδίσεις.

Και εκείνη σε ακούει και σου μιλάει. Σε φιλάει και σου γελάει. Δεν έχεις δει πιο όμορφο άνθρωπο σε όλη σου τη ζωή! Την ερωτεύεσαι παράφορα κάνεις λάθη όμως είσαι ευτυχισμένος. Αυτή η εικόνα γραπώνεται σφιχτά σε κάθε σου ανάμνηση και σε κάνει να χαμογελάς κάθε βράδυ όσο πληγωμένος και αν νιώθεις.

Έρωτας είναι να γυρνάς στο κρεβάτι σου χαράματα μεθυσμένος από το άρωμα των μαλλιών της που έγινε ένα με το δικό σου. Έρωτας είναι η γεύση της στο στόμα σου που απεγνωσμένα προσπαθείς να ξαναγευτείς. Έρωτας είναι η εικόνα της που σε στοιχείωνει όλη την ημέρα. Εκείνη η είκονα της.. Έρωτας είναι όταν νιώθεις την αγκαλιά σου άδεια μέχρι να την δεις.

Με δισταγμό κλείνεις τα κομμάτια που άνοιξες. Όλα γράφουν το όνομα σου. Οι μέρες σε προσπερνούν και εσύ είσαι μόνος. Τα πράγματα δεν έγιναν όπως τα ονειρεύτηκες αλλά δεν σε νοιάζει. Είσαι ακόμα ερωτευμένος. Αληθινά, απόλυτα και σκοτεινά ερωτευμένος.

Πες’με τρελό…

La pluie sans parapluie

5 Sep

Or..”the rain without an umbrella”


The first autumn rain was mild enough to let us take walks in it and feel the kind chill on our thirsty august skins. Meet up with a friend to pick up notes for my exams, hot coffee with the boy at our favorite place, listening to the rain drops falling on the glass ceiling, an exquisite home-made dinner at our friends, an upbeat night concert, warm people, an unfailing embrace. If you don’ t hide yourself under an umbrella, everyday life can bathe you in simple pleasures. I love it how rain and some color splashes here and there can turn the depressive ugliness of the downtown city streets into gloomy mesmerism.

Homesick?

Is it a barking seal? Is it a sausage with legs? NO! It' s Tasoulis! 😛

Time is on my side

24 Aug

..yes it is! : Stated by The Rolling Stones and I’ m determined to take their word for it.

The end of summer is always a stressful time of the year for me. I have to study hard, most of the time against my will, and overcome my powers for my upcoming exams, my beautiful flowers are on their way to their shrivelling and it’ s time to make massive plans for the future.

I’ m aware that I’ m not the only one stressing out! Almost everyone around me seems to have had postponed obligations, problems or decision-making for the summer and now it’ s time to face up to them again!

So, if you are one of the stressing out fellas, cheer up! Time is on your side, yes it is! I mean look at Mick Jagger! The guy sang about it and now he never gets old, still jumping around like a little goat! 😛

My point is, if your life seems to be going the wrong way, don’ t worry too much, there is always time to turn things round. Take my word for it, if you believe it, time expands in a weird way!

Listen to the song by The Rolling Stones(to be accurate it wasn’ t actually written by them):

Shopping Therapy

18 Aug

Today I had been studying for my upcoming exams for hours and I really needed a break. So I thought I’ d ride my bike and take a stroll around my neighborhood until all this hubbub left my brain, maybe follow new roads and discover some new spots. It was late in the afternoon so the sunrays were kindly warming and there was a slight breeze. The road led me to a supermarket so I left my bike and continued my strolling inside the store, looking for something fun to buy. I ended up buying a lovely pair of gardening gloves and some fruity ice pops for children (which I’ ve put in the freezer and will eat tomorrow) 🙂 Oh, the recharging power of shopping!

Oinousses (Οινούσσες)

10 Aug

Travelling in the past: Mission complete

Google search for “greek islands with no cars”, “..no tourists”, “..no noise”, etc, gave few results, I guess because people who are aware of such places don’ t wish to share the secret, which is perfectly logical since time and again we’ ve witnessed the invasion of tourists ruin hidden, beautiful and virgin places. So after a week’ s intense search we finally found the perfect destination.

The port

Oinousses (Οινούσσες) is a collection of small greek islands near Chios island. Although the largest one, Aignoussa (Αιγνούσσα), is very much known, mainly as the birthplace of famous shipowners, people find it too desolated for a vacation destination, chosing to visit it with boats from Chios island for one day trips rather than staying there, which was obvious by the number of accommodations, which were about five or so.

The Oinoussian Mermaid

For literally last-minute planners, we were very lucky finding convenient plane tickets to Chios and booking the last room available. Arriving there we were pleasantly surprised to see that everything was so much better than expected. We found the deserted oasis that we were looking for, enjoying beautiful beaches all by ourselves, taking walks around beautiful vacant houses, enjoying the difficulties of a place where people have no care at all for the visitors and regaining peace of mind after a series of stressful months.

Seeing pictures of the island from the 1900′ s at the local “Oinoussian Maritime Museum” we noticed that the island hasn’ t really changed throughout all these years. After recently thinking about time machines and travelling in the past, it occurred to me that I finally had a kind of back-in-time experience.

PICTURE DIARY

“Pateronisso”. One can reach it by swimming. I actually did.


“Agios Ioannis beach”. To reach it we had to follow the goats’ pathways and climb, since there is no road that can lead you there.

“Demis”, the wall climbing dog
In the back, Fra in his cave reading his book about zombies 😛
“Chatzali beach”. One more “private” beach.

Walking to the beach through the pines we saw rabbits go by
There were a lot of fig trees on the island
“Kathisma” beach.
There were also a lot of bees. Fra got stung by one 😛
We stayed at the beach till the sun went down

Local people dancing..
..and falling in love
“Chara”, the stray pekingese of the island
The statue of the “Oinoussian mother” waving goodbye. The men of the island are mainly sailors.
Fishing boats

This cat thought he was our pet, sneaking into the house and asking for food
He also brought his miniature friend
If you are to make some tortellini pasta in a pan (with chillie con carne sauce) be sure to be hungry enough to eat it 😛
Interesting luggage 😛
