 I love the Stars and the Stars love me,



they whatch us from above, light up the galaxy,


they say, when True Love flames for Stars and Land,

heroes are being born from the sons of man.

Monasticism in Lesvos pt2: Mantamados / St. Therapon


Say it loud!
I die for you n' I'm proud!

 Yelling it loud, oh baby baby, I die for you and I'm proud.
Should I write on your street in bright tones "I do" ?
 Every night we spend apart Lord 
 rips my heart in two
So I say  it loud, I die for you and I'm proud!
 I can't love another baby, I die for you and I'm proud.
 Tried hard to shut this love but
I die for you and I'm proud.
 Should I use any more plain words like these,
can't you see this helpless girl is begging for her master's kiss,
 I'm tellin' it loud, I die for you and I'm proud!

You know I know you know, baby
and you know who you are,
and even when we are apart 
we share a heart on fire,


So say it loud!
I die for you and I'm proud! 


Don't keep me waitin' any longer baby
(I die for you and I'm proud)
Can't go back and can't go forth baby
(I die for you and I'm proud)

Time is passing and you ain't coming home baby
(I die for you and I'm proud)
but I don't loose hope, don't loose hope
If you could just take a good breath, smile and dive in
nothing can go wrong with a bit of faith and some lovin',
So say it loud, baby baby,
I die for you and I'm proud!

Monasticism in Lesvos pt.1: Moni Ypsilοu.





















On the highest hill above a small fishing village named Sigri stands Moni Ypsilou. The monastery counts three monks but during my visit I only found one good fellah. He kindly explained to me how to recognise the differences between Russian orthodox and Greek orthodox art, which was pretty cool. Then on the tower I witnessed the most dramatic sunset but none of my shots managed to capture the real deal.
