New Year - New Prospects - Greater Expectations



Well initiaded already - 2007 - with fests and promenades, is still a great quest : whether it is going to be something different, if it will bring new meanings and qualities in everyday life of billions of people globally.
AEGEAN Islands and WAVES & WINDS, didn't seem to gain some interest among blog warriors, but the samee -more or less- happens in reality in the islands, their inhabitants' needs and the care needed for those not in teh central "core" of a little country like Greece. Inadequate Government organising networks and infra-structure haven't succeeded to keep the (24) islands from periodical isolation and lack of essential provisions and internal communication- ship connections are being constraint to the least. Thev weather has not been so bad this year, the whole of Greece not suffering from heavy Winter, the temperature is higher than all years before and doesn't give excusses for the islanders feeling so lonely and forgetted.
In such a state, we could not also sail our dream-vessel and have been kept ashore, in the "safety" embracement of family and friends, but not experiencing the quest and appeal of the unknown, what you are going to face and discover when changing places and experience. Homer had written about it as a main meaning in "Odyssey", but the famous Greek poet (Kavaphis) has written : " Ithaka is not the absolute pleasure when on it, the greatest favour you got is the trip that you had to make to reach it".
Hoping that some of you have open minded and can "travel" with us, introducing their own free ideas about peripheral living, nature friendly living, intensive quest for exchanging and proposing ideas and other, are welcomed to do so, and give us the courage to "sail our own dream-journey".
your Greek islander Captain,
FRANKY A.
