All that because, as my closest friends know, a long time ago wheBye bye old blog with Yahoo! You censored my artistic nude photos! Hello new blog with WordPress!n I was a skinny little girl I worked as a model for professionals in the wild outdoors of Creta, my island of origin, and later in Ikaria as well. In my poorest days I earned some good money and I was happy to see a good output from those exhIn Eleni's blog: 'nακεd & unemployed' - memo of Nana's first days in Ikariaausting long hours under sun, wind, cloud and camera.
Through that experience, also, I saw that countless sites and sceneries of this island, wild and free by nature and culture, are very suitable for the genre. Beyond that, as it happens with art, the results, when exhibited, get back to the locations as an appraisal to their quality. I have pointed that out in 2014. IIn my blog: Just an idea. The landscape is perfect and the boulders are abundant and very photogenic. Why can’t we do this kind of photoshooting while we are still young? Why can’t we do it in Ikaria?t feels like my message has reached the proper recipients.
I am glad
Nana 👩

Moments of Summer 2019 @ Ikaria


.
.
Ryakas canyon, southern Ikaria, 2019: Google Image Search Εκτός ότι πήγα στο Φαράγγι του Ρυάκα κοντά στον Μαγγανίτη και έμεινα στην περιοχή αρκετές μέρες γλυτώνοντας από τη φασαρία του Αυγούστου, δεν έχω άλλο ενδιαφέρον να σας πω δικό μου από το φετινό καλοκαίρι στο νησί. Πάντως, ήταν καλά, απ’ ό,τι έμαθα: ο κόσμος πέρασε καλά, κι οι ντόπιοι και οι ξένοι, όλα εντάξει, «ούτως ειπείν», που έλεγε ένας χαζός καθηγητής μου στο σχολείο ^^’
Δεν θα πω τίποτα, αλλά δεν μπορώ και να μείνω και βουβή. Ας γράψω και ας σας δείξω κάτι. Τι θα κάνω; Να, θα βάλω στην άκρη το hype για το οποίο όπως ξέρετε αδιαφορώ και θα διαλέξω να σας δείξω μερικές εξαιρετικές μικροστιγμές. Είναι μόνο πέντε. Όμως για μένα είναι αντιπροσωπευτικές. Αισθηματικές ή καλλιτεχνικές, αστείες ή πικρές, έχουν θάρρος κι αγάπη μέσα τους.

Η πρώτη από την CARPE NOCTEM στο Instagram έχει τίτλο:

«Waiting for green light» 😊

Η δεύτερη πάλι στο Instagram από τη Shakira Monamour είναι βιντεάκι με τίτλο:

«Poseidon’s blessings» 😌

.
Η τρίτη είναι ένα βιντεάκι του cha.vla από μια αυτοσχέδια διάσχιση του Φαραγγιού της Χάλαρης με τίτλο: 

«Για το στρώμα των χιλίων ευρώ, και για τις απερίσκεπτες αποφάσεις που φτιάχνουν τις καλύτερες ιστορίες.» 😇

Η τέταρτη είναι του ίδιου instagramer, μια εικόνα με τίτλο:

«Μερικές φορές πονάω αλλά δεν φταίει αυτό.» 😟

Hello readers! 😀

I haven’t blogged for long because I waited. I waited because it seems something good always comes up at this time of the year. In 2014 it was «The Day we took over the mountains». This year it was… KANGA! My friends Angelos, Xenia, Lefteris, Lina and Giorgos, all of them well-educated and experienced local guides, joined their forces and formed a collective. They are opening an agency of mountain tour guiding in Ikaria very soon. Hurray! 😀

Here they are! Do they look familiar to you? 🙂
When they establish the agency and set headquarters in Armenistis, the main tourist town of the island, there will be a joined e-mail address and phone number. But for…

Sturmvogel, by Nana agrimi on Flickr
~

Hello
Few weeks ago, I shared this photo, the “Sturmvogel”, on Flickr. I wanted to share it first of all as a gift to my island, and more particularly, if not more significantly, as a gift to a few special people, regardless if they will ever be able to see it.
I felt like I should share my Sturmvogel to show my gratitude.
My gratitude for all the moments, the actions, the initiatives, the performances, the interventions; for the dancing, the hiking, the photo-shooting, the exploring, the discovering; for the awkward moments, the embarrassments, the failures, the betrayals; for the endless debating, the jokes, the partying and the dancing; for the fight to make this small rock in the sea a better place to live.
Certainly, it’s not much. Certainly, most of it is erratic. But for me, just to know that these things happen, these people exist, makes my life on this island richer, happier and more liberating.
It makes the Sturmvogel put on her dream feathers and wings.
It makes the Sturmvogel run, take off and fly.
Making small changes, giving small examples, adding small touches of ingenuity, ephemeral flares of potential. Understanding the environment, communicating with the landscape. Studying history, culture and local lore. Being creative, sophisti-cated but un-technocratic. Enjoying the views, swimming naked, getting dehydrated, blazing lost trails across nowhere lands. Being small and big. Most of all, being un-materialistic, not funded, not subsided, not sponsored, non-profit.
Powered not by the odious “love for one’s home country” but by that primitive, shapeless yet powerful spirit, hidden in forests and rocks, known by poets and artists as genius loci.
Powered by soul power

The Sturmvogel is grateful
For the first time in her life she feels she belongs somewhere.
Even harder than that, for the first time in her life she feels attached and committed.

SLIDESHOW OF 'Soul powered works co', an album on Flickr. All you can see in this album is people! People who have helped in many ways and through various activities to make life in Ikaria more sustainable. It was created on request by our good old friend Nana to write an article about it in her blog. What an honour! Contents: Intelligent blazing and interconnecting trails to networks. Group hiking and climbing to exciting spots. View hunting and wild swimming. Building a dam (weir) on a fierce mountain torrent (for environmental and esthetic reasons). Digging to bring back a large natural pool to its original size before it was filled with rubble (because of overgrazing and the consequent land erosion). Rebuilding an old watermill and make it grind grain again. Leveling and cleaning forgotten trails through primeval oak forests. Dancing on the mountains to protest against wind turbines. Occupying and restoring an ancient mountain shelter. Supporting and guiding landscape photographers. Planting a long line of colored pylons on a vague old trail on the ridge. Helping set up work camps and outdoor theatricals and con-certs. Supporting and guiding trekkers, artists and performers. Building fences against goats. Planting roses in the desert.

The image above is a preview of an album (set on slideshow) on Flickr containing nearly 800 Soul Powered works co photos!!!
Taken in the course of 11 years, between 2007 and 2018, SPWC in Ikaria is a big baby today!
Finding myself by chance as a witness of the first expression of this gutsy active spirit in 2007, and being the first to blog about it, I felt I should do it again, more loudly. Because this time we have the whole thing. And because this time I am not a tourist anymore. I am a permanent resident, and as a Sturmvogel in this spirit I fly; as a Sturmvogel in this spirit I nest.
Soul Powered Works forever!

Παραδοσιακό Σπίτι στο Χωριό (# ανακαινισμένος αχυρώνας)

 angeloska | Flickr  Χαίρετε αναγνώστες αυτού του μπλογκ.

Με αφορμή τη παρακάτω φωτογραφία που ανέβασα στο Φλικρ, η οικοδέσποινα Νανά (to agrimi) με κάλεσε να ολοκληρώσω ένα μέρος της :-) συναρπαστικής :-) σειράς «Παραδοσιακό Σπίτι στο Χωριό» ανακοινώνοντας ότι η ανακαίνιση του βοηθητικού κτίσματος (αχυρώνας) στο κτήμα μας στην Ικαρία τελείωσε επιτέλους μετά ένα χρόνο σκληρής δουλειάς, στίψιμο του μυαλού και πολλά έξοδα. Όμως τελικά τέλειωσε και ήδη ο χώρος χρησιμοποιείται ως αποθήκη, εργαστήριο, γραφείο, το καλοκαίρι φιλοξενούμε φίλους, ενώ επίσης το δίνουμε και ως AirBnB ^^’

Επί της ουσίας δεν αλλάξαμε τίποτα. Τόσο που απορεί κανείς που πήγαν τα λεφτά. Ωστόσο όλα άλλαξαν. Με την έννοια ότι τα όλα (μα όλα!) βγήκαν, ξαναφτιάχτηκαν, και ξαναμπήκαν στη θέση τους. Η μόνη «ξένη προσθήκη» ήταν τα κάγκελα (από απλή σωλήνα γαλβανιζέ) στη σκεπή, καθώς και το κλιματιστικό που το είχαμε από παλιά και δεν ξέραμε τι να το κάνουμε, και να που βρήκε τη θέση του. Αργότερα αν ίσως βάλουμε κότες, πολύ θα το εκτιμήσουν! :-)

The Greek Slave


.

..
Two weeks already as a self deportee in a windy and cold Ikaria and I am looking through Eleni’s art books as I have done before. I found «THE GREEK SLAVE» by Jean-Léon Gérôme. The genre is neoclassicism, sub-genre ‘orientalism’, between cartoon and photography and trop bourgeois if you ask my opinion as a whole, but
the Slave captured me. I think she makes an exception. It’s not another Ancient Greece nude, by  the way. She a captive in the War of Greek Independence and she is being sold in the markets of Egypt. The painting is unfinished and this adds to the charm. Maybe in the end she managed to escape?
