Every morning, when I wake up I go to the kitchen door, open the upper half and spend a few moments looking. It isn’t the most dramatic view, no dazzling ocean or sweeping valley. It isn’t the Lake District or the Rocky Mountains. It is a quiet rural view across the Aegean, from Syros to Sifnos. I can see patches of vineyard, pony paddocks and sheep fields. There are rows of olive trees dotted about, small lanes weave up the soft hill scape on either side of the blue waters of the Aegean beyond the vineyard. The morning sun casts different shadows, calm sounds of goats and chickens, soft movements of boats in the distance. It is a patchwork of peace and solace. It is a view that welcomes you in, invites you to examine its many facets. It is a slow burning, endlessly fascinating view that lifts your heart. Read more
