“A drop of honey is a collection from the souls of flowers. It is a complex photographic impression translated into taste of a specific moment in time and place, each element of the equation bearing consequence upon the other.”

Maria Kavunedus
It has been a bitter winter, probably the coldest winter I've seen on the island of Paros. The anenomes have come up out of the hard packed soil between the wild thyme, sage and thorns. They are the magical phenomenon of February, fields of magnificent blooms in a staggering variety of lavenders, pinks, purples and whites floating on delicate stems with dark centres.

Books: The Lieblich Eva Brandt
Like so many people, I came to teach in Greece. That was my intention, and that’s what I still do. Besides that, fifteen years ago, I started writing too – children’s books to begin with… none of them what you’d call good… I just kept trying and didn’t give up.

Books: Out of the Rat Race into the Fire
“We arrived in Katapola, the main port of Amorgos, nearly an hour late at 4am, and had to drive to the other end of the island where our operation is based. It was 45 minutes of hairpin bends with a top-heavy, overloaded Land Rover in the pitch black. When we arrived in the other port of Aegiali, Henri had to spend a fun 10 minutes hunting for our house key in the predetermined plant pot outside a friend’s taverna. ‘Hunt the key’ was however not half as much fun as ‘hunt the house’. We had been there once before but in daylight.

Η Θαυματουργή Μέλισσα
The Miraculous Melissa (translated by Christina Alipranti)

Μερικές φορές κάτι πολύ μικρό μπορεί να κάνει μία μεγάλη διαφορά. Στη Πάρο έχουμε την ευλογία της παρουσίας της θαυματουργής μέλισσας που μας δίνει το μέλι. Η Πάρος έχει παράδοση στη μελισσοκομία εδώ και αιώνες. Η μοναδική και ασυνήθιστη συνεργασία μεταξύ των μελισσών και των ανθρώπων έγινε πηγή για τροφή, ιατρική, φως (κεριά) και επικοινωνία με τα Θεία.
