Walking tours on Thirasia island with Nicole

‘’ I’m not a painter, Daughter Thirassia. But I will tell you with lime and sea. I will preach you with what I write in what I do. I will offer you a life (the life I have not claimed) without policemen, without files, without cells. Only with a white bird over your head. I will plant vines-words. I will build a Palace with what you give me to love. From Igesos I will reach Saint Catherine. Earth and peace I will bring.’’

(Poem by Odysseas Elitis)
