The fourth day of my daily walks to Krios and my body is beginning to feel it in both a good way and a bad way. It would probably be a good idea to do some warm-up exercises but I’ve convinced myself that I don’t have the time.
This little church in Parikia is right at the port. Next to where the trees are is a little farmer’s market (I have already written about it HERE). Parian farmers come here to sell their produce as well as cheese and homemade wine and souma. I buy there as often as possible because the produce is local.
I enjoy it when women with flowered dresses and large buttocks walk in front of me. The flowers sway back and forth and it looks like a walking garden.
Todays’s mantra comes from Carlos Vives’ “Fruta Fresca“. It’s about a man who kisses a woman and then feels the taste of fruit on his lips. This taste won’t go away so the man prays and prays but the memory stays. The man is going crazy and ends up saying “Si si si!” (yes, yes, yes!). Now I know why they invented fruit flavoured lip gloss!
Si, si si. Om. Si, si si.
“Yes” is an affirmation and today much is written about the power of affirmations. Self-help books are full of theories about them. Amulets and talismans are often used as physical reminders of these affirmations. So another project on my already overdosed To Do list is to make a talisman from plastic debris found on the beach. What do you think Irini Gonou?
