What?! Where are all olive trees and the green pastures of the island? Remember the first time I came over a ridge and saw the moonlike landscape of south western Lesvos. A bit dead at first sight, a long line of sheep down the vally made me amazed and the first sight of beautiful Sigri.

Beautiful October and November. Stunning! Lucky with the light from that hesitant sun,
no winds, taking a swim, warm water,
sunbathing in your underwear, incognito...
Contemplating fisherman on the pier, mirrorlike water in the harbor.
What else could you ask for of relaxation and beautiful nature?
My imprint island of Lesvos, any day... any time...

On a day like this, I look for something that reminds me of something else, but hostility! Eftalou, Delfinia beach and a view to the mountains, in its own silence and serenity. Even if I did not balance the bottom photo, I decided to say to myself, "do you really care"? I do not. My own need of peace versus hostility in all of Greece is by far more important....

It is time for that special silence on Lesvos. All the Autumns and Winters have it in them!
I looked for symbols.
What a sleeping beauty and it could be me or anyone in that rowing boat. On a journey through life!
From Sigri and Molivos. Ioanna took the photo of the man in the boat.
Silence on Lesvos, is very particular to me. I keep telling myself that. Over and over again.....

Last night I had a dream about my neighbors down the alley!
You can set the watch after the start of the gossiping hours, usually starting at 7 in the evening. Day in and day out, exactly the same place, the same people, year after year. I cannot understand what has happened to them during one single day, giving them all that energy and intensity of words being exchanged.
I remember I had a picture taken in September. More people to come later on. It is like a drop-in!
A bit of a distance, but did not want to sneak up on them.
I miss them right now. It is so innocent....

...of how simple something is. This was the first that struck me, when I arrived in Lesvos, many years ago now. I find it every day from dawn to dusk. Wherever I go, it is just around the corner.
It never stops amazing me.....
|The camera shutter disturbs the silence|
|Can it be more simple in it's simplicity?|
|The most simple of places, squeezed in between the road, five meters to the left, and the rock to the right.|
