Dear Friends from all over the world,
Thanks for supporting my blog for so long, especially during my illness, and my recent absence from your own blogs, which are a great source of inspiration for me.
I was in Athens just recently, and I feel as if I have recharged my batteries enough to last me through to the summer.
I'll start writing more very soon, as well as get back to read your own work.
Once again, thanks for showing the interest to get me back to writing.
Here's hoping to keep up your interest!


  1. I'm soooooo happy you'll keep on blogging. Your blog is an inspiration and a connection for me to my dear place, Crete.

  2. I look forward to many more great blogs!

    That's good news for us, your faithful readers.

  12. Maria, I'm knew at this I have not yet put anything in my blogspot because I don't know how to start, but I will get there "some day" :). I want you to know that I started a blogspot just because I wanted to be a part of yours, I love reading your blog because I see crete through your eyes, a place where one day I would love to visit and maybe live. There is something about crete that I can not explain, I have never been but yet I feel a deep attraction. So please don't stop wrighting. I thank you for giving me the chance to travel with you. :)
