    I really liked the visual view of Xania. Probably a simple technique, but the flash of fire was effective. 🙂 Love to you from us!

    Thanks Mary! We are going to visit the 7 cities of Revelations, probably around mid April, see if we can make any sense of it. Any ideas or suggestions?
    Are you doing OK? I hope you are taking it easy, being good to yourself. I send much love.

    Thanks so much Tyrell. We are trying to capture the depth, maybe like the view from the eyes of the artist? It’s an interesting experience.
    I appreciate your feedback. XX

    Seeing the ancient ruins of civiliztions of eons ago, reminded me of the ancient pueblos of our South West. It is a reminder of how brief our lifes are, and as the song goes, ‘AND THE BEAT GOES ON’!!

    the Garden Club vidio today of Sherri’s Garden was very nice, Sharon showed it without a
    hitch”!!. We all miss your presence, but the great adventure you are having, and sharing with us. is very much appreciated.

    Love, Jane

    Fantastic footage! I have always loved learning about the ancient Minoan civilization. I didn’t know that Crete had had such a diversified background. You always manage to include a surprise with your videos.

    Thanks Marlene. We are looking for the depth, trying to see past the visible. It’s not always easy, but right now we are in a town in East Crete, called Sitia, with a lovely room off the water. Nobody is here, it’s off-season, so it’s quiet and peaceful; just a small Cretan town on the water. It’s easy to feel inspired! XX
