http://www.irafina.gr/otan-o-nikos-keladis-forouse-ti-fanela-tou-argonafti/

…I was flabbergasted today by an emoticon I received in my messenger from our common friend …an emoticon with tears in its eyes….I wondered ….

Suddenly it crossed my mind….I tried to call you at home, no answer, at your mobile, at skype….no reply…..

and then a phone call came like a thunder in my ears…..

        ..I talked with you last week….you reassured me that everything was in post…your health ameliorating…….

and now THIS!!!!!!!

how difficult  is to say goodbye….

Our friendship lasted almost 17 years….we cared of each other and respected one another…despite our character’s differences….

I am not sure how I feel right now…..empty??  But oh no, I am full of good memories and thoughts …I hold your  dolphins- my glass menagerie ,jewelry, your pink toy doll…, the dolphins’ carpet…….as a commemoration of  our friendship…

My featured on this post is my painting with the dolphins, you had urged me to draw back in 2000.

Farewell Nikos,

Today I was sent the below link:

Pity!!!

Ανέσπερο Φως * Eternal Light …arriving at 18:30 at the Athens International Airport…


Too much fuss about the ANESPERO =ETERNAL -LIGHT recently ……

Christians deeply believe in the miracle happening in the tomb of Christ in Jerusalem, faithful gather from all over the world in order to live the feeling of the moment…..

So, let us see what is this ANESPERO FOS

Ανέσπερο Φώς

που δεν δύει, δεν σβήνει, που διατηρεί την αίγλη του, το φως, τη δόξα

Είναι το φως που δεν το βλέπει κανείς με τα μάτια του σώματος, αλλά με τα μάτια της καρδιάς.  Είναι το αιώνιο φως που δεν παύει ποτέ να φωτίζει και που αγκαλιάζει και διαπερνάει το κέλυφος της ύλης και του χρόνου.

  • the light that never sets, never seen, with “bare eyes” but seen with the eyes of the heart!

  • It hasn’t lost its glamour and fame throughout the “ages”, it is eternal.

  • It never ceases to illuminate and embrace our hearts penetrating matter and time shells.

The plane will arrive at 18:30 tomorrow at the International Airport of Athens.

The welcoming squads will welcome and greet the “holy light” as if a head of State.

 

 

 

 

Greek Orthodox Easter ….


The text below is a “loan”!…Interesting to read and learn!

Easter 2017 is only a few days away, which for many people means chocolate, a long weekend and egg hunts.

This year, Easter is on Sunday, April 16, with Good Friday on April 14 and Easter bank holiday Monday on April 17.

But did you know there are actually two Easters?

Most people celebrate Easter on the dates recognised by the Western Christian world, which are based on the Gregorian calendar.

But Eastern Christianity celebrates Easter based on the old Julian calendar.

Otherwise known as Greek Easter or Orthodox Easter, the dates are sometimes the same as western Easter.

How it Greek Easter celebrated?

Preparations for Easter begin on Holy Thursday, when aster bread (tsoureki) is baked and eggs are coloured with red dye, with red is the colour of life and also symbolic of the blood of Christ.

Good Friday is treated as a day of mourning, and the most devote do not eat at all. Others will only eat simple foods.

Flowers are taken to church to decorate a representation of the body of Christ, which is carried in a procession during a Service of Lamentation.

Families prepare mayiritsa on Easter Saturday, which is a soup made from lamb (or goat kid) offal and tripe, cooked on the stove with onions and herbs (plus an egg and lemon sauce that’s mixed in at the end).

In the evening, people go to church with special white candles which are lit just before midnight as the Eternal Flame on the altar is passed around the congregation.

After midnight there are early morning prayer services and a communion to mark Easter Sunday.

Worshippers will then carry their flame home and use it to light other candles in the house. Families then gather around the table and break their fast with soup, bread and eggs.

A meal of roast lamb is made and households enjoy a feast of eating and drinking on Easter Sunday.

In Greece itself, the Eternal Flame arrives by military jet on Easter Saturday and is given to the priests to take to their local churches.

The whole country celebrates Easter at midnight with church bells, ships’ horns, floodlights and fireworks.
