Our Family visit at the Lasinthos Eco Park at Lasithi Plateau, Crete

Posted by on May 15, 2022 in Greece Travel Diary, Random Thoughts

I never thought much of any theme parks that do not feature a roller coaster but a chance visit to Lasinthos Eco Park changed my view. PhotoMan* was called to do his Super Hero Photography Thing there and was invited to stay overnight. Since pets and family are welcome at their apartments, Deka, our dog, […]

Έμαθα τις λέξεις για τα σχήματα και για εργασία, η δασκάλα ελληνικών μου ήθελε να σχεδιάσω ένα τέρας με μερικά σχήματα και να το περιγράψω. Όταν έκανα αυτή την εργασία, ανακάλυψα ένα τέρας μέσα μου. I made my first video and blog post in Greek! This is actually one of my Greek homework entries, for […]

‘I saw nothing!’ – My sorry tale at a Judy Hall Crystal Workshop

‘I saw nothing!’ – My sorry tale at a Judy Hall Crystal Workshop

Me too. I saw nothing! Sometimes clients ask me how to connect with the other realms. Some of them have been doing all sorts of practice but still, nothing. I’m willing to share what I know but where to begin? There are different kind of senses, and there are so many different ways of practising. […]

Looking through the Eyes of a Photographer

Posted by on Oct 3, 2020 in Random Thoughts

My husband whom I hero-named PhotoMan is a professional photographer. Whenever he needs an extra pair of hands, I work as his assistant.  After spending another corporate profile shoot observing people feeling awkward, I would like to share with you what the photographer is seeing. I will use ‘he’ since PhotoMan is the only photographer […]

Is Depression a ‘thing’?

Is Depression a ‘thing’?

My first encounter with Natural Healing Methods ‘Do you know you have depression?’ My Kinesiologist asked me after doing some checks in the Kinesiology way. At the time I had no idea what Kinesiology was or how it worked, even after reading everything from this Kinesiologist’s website several times. That was also my first encounter […]

My long journey to Ithaca

My long journey to Ithaca

Thanks to my husband, my mother-in-law and her long line of ancestors, I finally made it to Ithaca. The first time I traveled to Greece was in the summer of 1996. During the planning of our first trip to Europe, my travel companion asked me, amongst the Greek islands that were mentioned in her travel […]

From Ego to Attachment Paranoia to Purple-Man Recently I had a consciousness exploration type session and my ego came out to speak. Anyone who knows me well would know that my ego sounded exactly like me when I am being playful. My new practitioner friend, alas, didn’t know that side of me and thought that […]

Recently my husband and I got married again. A lot of Greek people thought we weren’t really married until we were blessed by the church. They do respect other people’s custom but when it involves men with Greek blood, their own rules apply and it’s often easier to comply with their traditions. My Husband and […]

Today I went to yoga class with a heavy heart. I’ve been going to the same yoga class every Tuesday and Friday morning and I love it. The teacher is nice and so are my classmates. It is more than an exercise class for me. It’s like a social gathering with people who share my […]
