Outcomes


I don't want you to read my cup.
I don't need to know the outcomes of future.
I don't care about predictions.

I do want to listen to your story while your cheeks turn red.
I do need to enjoy a cup of coffee with bitter chocolate.
I do care about magic in the present moment.

I do want to feel happily surprised by unexpected outcomes that take place like a Chinese colourful parade in front of my eyes..!

*A big hug to my friend Maria for our sweet interaction today in Athens.

Unlocking freedom

My own way?
Who am I to find my own way?

And who are you not to?
That bird whispered these words and opened the door of my cage.

I stood outside.
It was the first time I saw how big my wings were.

Are you coming with me?
That bird asked before taking off.

Flapping together we created music in the air.

Two women*


Two women.
One common discussion. 
About the ruins.
About the damaging effects of a war.
About the losses.
About the secondary trauma. 

Two women.
One common story.
About two countries.
About two life lines.
About optimism and despair.
About prosperity and decline.

Two women.
One common desire.
About living with passion.
About flying high.
About grounding to the inner self.

Two women.
One poem.
About hope.

* To my dear friend Joanna Dudek

Earth Day


My feet on the soil.
My eyes towards the sky.

My secrets, sensual seeds ready to grow.
My desires, impatient buds to blossom.
My dreams, flying above the garden.

Myself, on the ground, in the air.

The Earth Day, yesterday.
The Days to come, treasures hidden in the Sky.

The Earth and the Sky, a canvas for my life colors.

Ένας ύμνος στη ζωή


Με τη λαχτάρα 10χρονου αγοριού ετοιμαζόταν να μπει στο γήπεδο.
Με παιχνιδιάρικο βλέμμα κοιτούσε τους συμπαίκτες του.
Με σκανταλιάρικο χαμόγελο σκεφτόταν να κάνει ζαβολιές.
Με υγιή καρδιά να δίνει το ρυθμό ψιθύρισε το δικό του ύμνο.
Με μια μπάλα στα χέρια θα αφιέρωνε αυτό το ματς στη ζωή.
Το παιχνίδι είχε μόλις ξεκινήσει...

The Rising of the Faith


I am not sure if I am a religious person. I know that I am a believer though.
I believe in the power of transformation. The one which uplifts the spirit.
I have faith in the things that become holy entities: the spicy perfume, the spontaneous smile, the traditional sweet of every country, the salty vibes of the ocean...

I believe in the magic synthesis of the dialectics. I show respect for the bitter and the sweet, the light and the heavy, the hard and the soft, the normal and the abnormal. As a faithful prayer I find my way through the opposites. Being surrounded by Angels of Inspiration I manage to act according to a plan of Metamorphosis. 

I believe in the corrective life experiences which awaken the sensation around my nostrils. I choose my own rituals to show my devotion to combine the thesis and the antithesis. I sprinkle cinnamon on a slice of orange as a balancing offering between the bitter and the sweet. I feed myself and get in touch with the senses which are evoked.

The power of Awareness enhances this personal ritual. Its grace enlightens my way and softens my hard parts.

I am sending my warmest wishes to you all, religious or not, who desire to be enlightened and inspired in your life. Let's set ourselves in an authentic mode and be in tune with our own Faith.
