    Wonderful trip to Crete for me! Very impressive how worship was part of the daily life. The murals were so lovely.

    Thanks so much,

    Thanks so much Barbara. We have a little to-go setup with a cardboard box for the mic — very gorilla video.
    Happy spring, happy Easter!

    Thanks Jane, it takes a bit longer to get these done on the road, but I think finally we have a system. Happy Easter!

    What lovely photographs! This is a place I have wanted to visit since I was a child. Thank you for bringing to me a sense of this place beyond what I have gotten from books. The murals are spectacular.

    Thanks for watching the video, Geri, and thanks for your generous comments.
    Happy Easter!
    (We are planning to spend Greek Easter on Patmos, where I hear they have a beautiful celebration.)

    Me again, Alex.

    Your and John’s Crete piece keeps coming back to me today. Of all your work, this seems the most lyrical. I wonder if it’s in part because of the haunting murals and artwork, and how you tell the story of people living so completely within their own myths.

    I have this image that sticks… of people living in those gorgeous rooms with magnificent murals showing the natural wonders of their world and their holding an Apple phone in their hands. Somehow it fits… that rather than a distraction, it would have been just another tool to communicate their unusually gifted world….just like you have with us!!

    Keep me posted!
