Of Course You Can Go Home Again

Jeff—Saturday

Well, we’ve arrived on Mykonos. So much has changed. Or is it we have changed? Time may answer that. Or not.  But, no matter, the creative juices are flowing, and CNN is tucked away, lost in the white noise background of competing local craziness, not trumpeting breaking news inside my eyelids.  As I said, things have changed.

Everywhere. It’s palpable.

But I’m not going to talk about that this week. This is time for easing back into the old life, and what better way to do that than through a return to the sea, the source of all life.

So, here’s a photo essay taken on a spur-of-the-moment sunset run between the island’s new harbor in Tourlos and the old port in old town Mykonos.  Nothing fancy, just a quick jaunty cruise with friends in their “zodiac.”  It’s precisely these sorts of unscripted moments that remind me I’m home again.  And what else can one hope for than to be back among so many friends who are more like family—and allow me to play the crazy uncle. :)


We're off!
Entering the old port






Huddled masses

Our Captain's imitation of the Statue of Liberty, Greek Style
A few ships along the way



Dusk, and time to move on.



Until anon...

  1. Home is the writer, home by the sea:
    His punished keyboard speaks,
    Through his reflecting camera we see
    The wonder of the world.

  2. EvKa, You're a Poet,
    Even if you don't know it.
    Your feet show it,
    They're Long fellow.

    1. She was in a hiding mode. I'll have to coax her out with kind, sweet words. Now all I have to do is find someone who can speak them. :)

  6. It is beautiful! But torture to see as I look out of my living room window where a six-story is being constructed, thus blocking out my only source of sun and sky.

    1. Thankfully, Kathy, your primary source of sunshine comes from within. :)

  8. Thanks, EvKa. I feel as if I just won an Oscar--and you're all invited to the After Party.
