The island often reminds me of those days, when visited by a cancer, I had to go somewhere and talk to make a choice and I am close to the steps I took, to at least go and have a chat with the angel of angels. It was a long and wonderful walk on paths through the rising hills and valleys and roads and the island showed it's stunning beauty, consoling a worried mind...
|AT THE CRACK OF DAWN|
|HAZY LIGHT IN THE VALLEY|
|THE BELLS WERE RINGING|
|FRIENDS ON THE ROAD|
|STILL HAZY AND MAJESTIC|
|ANOTHER LONER BUT MIGHTY PROUD|
|LOVE IN A BRIEF CONTEXT|
|TAXIARXIS, MIRACLE MAN|

...and presumably others as well. I had a special lense that day, when I was involved with the proud team of Molyvos. I could use the lens to focus advantages in the light we had, and I walk up the hill to the house several times each time of the day, in the morning, noon and starlit nights, with the Venetian fortress, to Castro, in focus. This touches me all the time, quietly watching over us and especially on this day in the beginning of December, when the sun and the leaves of the trees were still dancing a touching dance with beautiful costumes in green and yellowish lemon. "You are a romantic person, Torsten", I said to myself and perhaps yes and perhaps no, and why not in this secular world, and because it was like this. And I look forward to the new light coming, for me and for everyone...

I have always thought this church, in the village of Vafiós, to carry a piety that I cannot just pass by. Friends have got married here. I take a seat on the empty bench aginst the sun lit wall, wondering what this next week will bring...
|LIKE THE BLUE AND GREEN OF THE SEAS|
|PEACE OF MIND AGAINST THE WALL|
|THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A FIVE TO TWELVE|

I found so many pictures inside of me that I wanted to look at them like this....
|CARRY YOUR BRIDE UP THE MANY STAIRS TO THE TOP OF THE PETRA!|
|GREEN, GREEN, GREEN IN THE SUMMER|
|THEY DID NOT MIND THE CAMERA WHEN I ASKED|
|IN THE MOST FAMOUS CORNER OF THE VILLAGE|
|FRAPPEDES IN THE SUMMER|
|JUST A FAINT SMILE|
|BY THE WATERFRONT|

I have always had a warm relation to the village of Petra. It is so different from other villages by the sea, and that is a good enough reason to go there. Not just because of the precious Byzantine church of Aghios Nikolaos and it's colorful interior, but many alleys and roads and a great Platía where everyone meets for a drink before dinner or just a coffee break during the day. I know that Petra touches me in the Winter, becaue of it's silence and the days of waiting for the Spring and Summer to come...
