- .(or «THE SWALLOW CAROLS»)
(Carols announcing the inevitable arrival of spring -sung door to door by the children in the villages of byzantine & post byzantine Greece.)
Χελιδονάκι πέταξε, ηύρε πύργο κι έκατσε
-Μάρτη, Μάρτη μου καλέ
και Φλεβάρη φοβερέ
κι αν χιονίσεις κι αν φλεβίσεις
πάλι Άνοιξη θ’ ανθίσεις.
I received it by e-mail from Angelos. His wife is a musician and this is one of her favourites.
I dedicate it to Simon.
Speaking of my guardian angel, Angelos, well, he proposes that I connect my blog to his photos
in Flickr. I’ll think about it. I don’t represent anybody or speak for anybody but me alone.
I’m about to speak about frogs, the European forests, my video-clip scenarios, why I won’t shave my legs this summer … that sort of thing. Will it be «only Ikaria»? I’m afraid it will. Gosh.
Anyway, I hope the swallows bring with them some of my friends. I have missed so much my Nana…
when you move the mouse over the text of my blog entries, there are links, you know that, don’t you? eh?
(sorry about my «eh»s. Those who have travelled to Greece, know how important an «eeh» is. It can mean almost everything ! Next best is «aah». I try not to use that last at least in written, or all my writings would be «eeeh, aaahhh», «aaahh, eeehh» -LOL
