Like a J o u r n e y in time |
A beautiful wooden ship resting & enjoying the Sunset Colours,
seemingly as if having been beamed from back in time (like tele-transferred) rather than sailed in the Marina.

Brought a bizarre sensation of Past, Present & Future meeting in one.
My Mind started drifting in Theories of Relativism and such.

Not for long though.
My Heart soon took over,
filling me with Emotions of Joy & Sadness simultaneously.

Is there anything more ambivalent than feeling absolutely content & present,
taken in by what unfolds before your eyes,
yet again feeling that this Joy would be perfectly complete should another particular Soul be there to be enjoying it, too?

To save myself from... myself,
I decided that I am enough to watch & feel for two ~

Oh Love, what would we people do & be without you?

Athens in Spring ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ”น๐ŸŒฟ | 23. 04. 2017 |

Visiting Athens in Spring can be delightful.
It is still not crowded, the temperatures are mostly around 20 degrees Celsius, the Sun is warm & almost ever present, the Skies deeply blue & the atmosphere clear & fresh resulting from the Winds coming from the Sea & the mountains alike
|
When visiting the Acropolis & the Acropolis museum, do take also some time strolling the streets & alleys vertical to & around the main Pedestrian Street, Dionisiou Areopajitou
|
They are packed with beautiful & well preserved buildings like this one (for the architecture lovers) there is almost zero vehicle movement, no crowds, with the streets being aligned with gigantic trees, which will soon be covering much of the view up to the pretty architectural details
|
Happy Sunday everyone!
Hope you are spending it mighty fine!

Are you tired of my Athenian Architecture Series, yet?
Just another building spotted on my walk while heading to the Hill where the National Observatory ist.
|
One thing to notice about Neoclassical Greek Architecture is the fact that it is apparently simplistic & "reduced",
however always rich in the most beautiful details, as a means of livening up & highlighting otherwise simple Lines
|
Lines which are combined with elegant Curves in a way that, in my Eyes & Perception, is truly the outcome of an Exercise in Balance successfully & perfectly executed
|
Symmetry.
Plasticity.
Elements of "Surprise", such as the beautiful decorative Details.

Hach. I guess I love to talk about Architecture & Interior Design.
Then again, also about Philosophy, Psychology, the Arts... The BEST of all though, is to experience all of these first hand.
For this reason, when I am somewhere "diving" into experiences of any kind,
I rarely post on the spot, even though in a way IG was originally meant for something like that.

In a World where constant posting & sharing appears to have become a "normality", I just love to be, to do, to digest & then at some point share. And you, dear ones?

Life is better with Cake, non? ๐Ÿ˜‰
| 22. 04. 2017 |

Happy Saturday everyone!
While ready to make a delicious brunch ๐Ÿณ with fresh produce brought from the farmer's market (eggs & avocado & walnut bread as basic ingredients) here is a dessert I'd love to accompany my cup of tea or coffee.
This delicious Lemon Pie with egg whites, which though will currently not, as this is a pic that somehow remained unshared.
Better late than never, may I say!
|
Enjoy your weekends darlings!
Love & good vibes your ways!

Happy Friday wishes ~ ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ”น | 21. 04. 2017 |

No blue skies currently here today, therefore a picture portraying them, featuring a detail from one of the buildings in the previous picture:

L i g h t & s h a d o w s ~
Charming afternoon light & shadows of elegant details curved from iron.

p.s: this alley is close to the geotagged place.

Side by Side ๐Ÿ”น | 20. 04. 2017 |

Twin Windows
Twin Balconies &
Athens doing "her" thing ~

Shutter Colour inspired by the blue of the Skies
Delicate iron details for the little Blaconies "standing" on Marble,
while elegantly floating in the Air &
Lines of "Acrocerams" on the Roofs.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday dear IG!

Festive, springy, joyful, lighthearted Athens ready to receive you with Love & Appreciation ~ ๐Ÿ”น๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ”น๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ”น
|
A building I love for it features typical Greek Neoclassical Simplicity, rich in discrete & delicate details though, with a huge emphasis on Plasticity & Geometry as always.

Posting & "running" currently, wishing you all lovely afternoons ahead middle of this Week!
The Weather is delightful here with somehow strong, fresh Winds.

Good morning ๐ŸŒณ | 19. 04. 2017 |

I woke up early (as usual) & while taking a look around me from the various windows of my Summer Home Apart 44, I shed a tear, both from Happiness that my Family has managed to stay strong together through difficulties & from being Homesick & missing Germany
|
I realised that this intense longing to return to the grounds that have become my beloved Home - mein Geliebtes Zuhause - is serving as the biggest Heart opener & Mindfulness Living agent that I would have ever so far imagined through my whole Life.

Wherever the right place will be & on the right, divine timing, I just cannot wait to set up my German Home again & be posting from there.

In the meantime, I have decided to embrace Athens like I have never done before in my whole Life.
And for that, I have my Life in Germany to thank.
Ich vermisse Dich so sehr Deutschland mein beliebtes Land ๐Ÿ’™

I am wishing you all a wonderful, blessed in all ways day!

When walking the Streets of Athens in Spring, the Ancient Agora to the right, the Acropolis to the depth forward, while looking up to Trees, which will soon be providing their Cooling Shade to tourists & locals alike.

Happy Tuesday everyone ~ ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ | 18. 04. 2017 |

It's a working day here at my Summer Home's Headquarters.
However Lunch time is approaching & despite the delicious left overs from our Easter table,
I would also love to be here, enjoying the place's amazing Cuisine, Interior Design aside.
.
.
p.s: a special tag for my Athenian wanderings is obviously needed, I'll be working on that!

Finding Happiness in a World of Silver Greys ~ | 17. 04. 2017 |
First day after Easter or Ostermontag as we say in German & I am found writing almost unstoppably all day from early morning on.
I appreciate so much Inspiration when it effortlessly flows that I refrain from being involved in anything else, as if to not disturb it.
Stories for my Traveling Diaries, as much as Stories of Love (in the mood of "Greece met Germany & they fell in love") getting unveiled in ways that most probably, had I not been where I currently am residing in my humble suburban Athenian Summer Home, would have never taken place.
These lines being typed at the front veranda in the setting that you see, Rain is falling lightly after a Storm that coloured the Skies in moody Blue Greys, while the Sounds of Thunders striking broke the Silence, adding flashes of extreme Light. The smell of wet Ground, simply delightful.
Covered in my favourite silver grey trench coat (purchased in Munich already 7 years ago) I think to myself that this is me.
Forever in love with all forms of Light & having Germany particularly to thank for my deep Love of cloudy, rainy days, which though can shed so much beautiful Light in our Souls.

I'll stop these ramblings as my Greek Coffee is drunk & leave you with some Words from @flow_magazin that totally resonate with me since I read them: "Nicht, was wir gelebt haben, ist das Leben. Sondern das, was wir erinnern & wie wir es erinnern & davon erzรคhlen" by author Gabriela Garcia Marquez (1927 - 2014) | "Not what we have lived is Life. Rather THIS that we remember, HOW we remember it & the WAY we are narrating about it"
Wishing everyone wholeheartedly a wonderful Start in the new Week ๐ŸŒฟ

Light, shadows, blue skies, warmth, beautiful Greek Neoclassical Architecture (with clear elements of the Country's Ancient past, like the Corinthian rhythm inspired pole) & a very Urban Jungle Bloggers Corner in the Heart of Thisio's vibrant area, with Cacti & Lemon Trees aligned along the pavement.
