Easter, Neighbours and Old Stone Walls


 
The sun set on Easter – rather spectacularly, with golds and pinks and pale blues. Greek Easter is done and dusted for another year, though it won’t be truly over until the last firecracker has resounded like a gunshot, breaking the silence that reigns during these warm, still days, and sending Lisa whimpering into the smallest room in the house.

“I love life. Life is too precious to me not to live it fully.”
Jeanette Winterson

Ernest Hemingway
“As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Nora Ephron
“Vera said: “Why do you feel you have to turn everything into a story?”

Nora Ephron, Heartburn
