A cold day today.
A cloudy cold day but perfect up on the hill…
Athens, mt. Penteli and the Olympic Stadium
Looking towards the sea…
Tiny beauties on the ground
…and with beauty comes this too:

The Beatles: Because

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue

[John Lennon / Paul McCartney]

On my way down, I saw some feathered visitors wondering about …I think one of them spotted me. Chukars! Obviously also enjoying their walk!

A beautiful Thursday evening, everyone…

…weekend soon!

        • Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  2. Speechless! Such sprawling magnificence.. the light on the sea.. the soft mountain.. the perfect tune! You are definitely ringing some bells here! 🙂👏👏👏🙂

    • Oh my o my…… I am so flattered, my friend but you are too kind! Still, I am so glad that these -very unprofessional- shots convey my feelings too! ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️

              • Yeah I do too… “don’t worry… I’m going to water you soon…” or “I’m bringing you inside for the winter so you don’t freeze outside!” that kinda stuff. 😊🙂✨🎄🙂😊

                  • giggles Btw, that Beatles song is one of my favs. The whole 2nd side of Abbey Road just might be my favorite pop passage of all time. I used to listen to it as a kid, immersed in nature at Georgian Bay. I think I mentioned that b4. Very special. Very wild. Untouched. GOOD CHOICE!

                    • 2nd side only? 😉 To be honest just because they were so popular -as a kid- I didn’t listen to them much. It was a bit later that I began realizing that these guys were out of this world, for lack of a better word! This particular song moves me so much EVERY time I listen to it.

                    • I like the whole album but the way all those partial songs flow into one another… I just think it’s brilliant! I heard one person describe it as a “medley” but I don’t think that word does it justice. “One two threee four five six seven…” 😀
