Apologies just noticed I hadn't signed in on my last post re:"[email protected]@dy rain" [Suns been shining nicely today:-)]
Just to say I love everything about Crete!
Apart from Greek beurocrasy and trying to earn a living here!
Ugh!

Same here in the South! The roads turned into RIVERS and my flowers were beaten to the ground!

This morning they were raising their heads again while enjoying the sunshine and the warmth of a summer day!

Dinny,
it may sound strange but your decription of your flowers surviving the storm reminded to me the history of Crete: Crete has many times been beaten to the ground by its numerous enemies and conquerors, but every time it managed to raise its head again and enjoy the warmth and the brightness of the Cretan sky...
Perhaps I am still influenced by the Xasteria poem posted here by George...

Nothing in this world is perfect, but leaving details like that aside I concur with Anne's "Everything!!!!"

Not only you, Yannis! I have bought a tape with Cretan music which includes the Xasteria song and by now I know it by heart (thanks to Yorgos writing the words for us) - so much that I dream about singing it! :D
