When Crete is the step and the ladder....

October 12, 2017

I am fortunate. Two weeks of work on Kazantzakis' novels, the author who has shaped the Cretan dreams of my origins, in one of the few villages which remain quite untouched from the mayhem of commercial tourism. Swimming before or after Tai Chi and Yoga practice, sitting by the sea or the mountain feet or in the olive groves and finding action in the walk and gaze of Captain Mihalis. This is not enough. Mario Monopoli is here in Crete. We met seven years ago, we did not speak each other's language but we did step onto the stage together. Something great began at that very moment....


I want to thank my friend Giorgos without whom this first Cretan encounter would not have taken place, Ino Menegaki, for her incredible courage and determination and everyone who made this possible in one way or another.

Here is an article published about the laboratory run in Milatos this September 2017. Thank you to Mr Sgouros for listening patiently and writing about something completely new for the Cretan soil. We all learnt, we will all return.
