We have left our lovely Paros and will miss our lunches near the sea.

A home keeps you warm inside and that’s why it’s a hearth. I have many pillows on our καναπές so I can sit and snuggle with Volver our cat. From here I can see outside the door with its blue curtain that moves with the breeze and lets in fallen bougainvillea petals. It’s here where I drink my morning coffee as I look at my neighbour’s trumpet vine. Home is where the heart is and my home is here.

This is the Big Bed at La Sussurrata, our home on Paros. The sheets are old and worn and would have many stories to tell if they were to speak. The mended pillow cases have absorbed our night-time dreams but don’t know how to explain them. And on this bed we have exchanged our physical love, a love that acts like glue when our ideas divide us. Insomnia is a land to be kept far away because it hides happiness.
