Wet Summer III

Perched on the slopes of Mount Itamos at 350 meters above sea level, approximately 5 km from Neos Marmaras, is the traditional village Parthenon, the best getaway if you are in Sithonia.

I was thinking how amazing it was that the world contained so many lives. Out in these streets people were embroiled in a thousand different matters, money problems, love problems, school problems. People were falling in love, getting married, going to drug rehab, learning how to ice-skate, getting bifocals, studying for exams, trying on clothes, getting their hair-cut and getting born. And in some houses people were getting old and sick and were dying, leaving others to grieve. It was happening all the time, unnoticed, and it was the thing that really mattered.
