Refugee from Y!360

Today

migrated to Vientam (!) and I migrated to

I saved my last entry in Yahoo!360°  for you to see how cool that platform was. My only problem with them was censorship. How many times had they sent me  mails threatening that they would close me down over only two small sized black naked torsos that a professional fashion photographer took of me on a crazy night in Ikaria. So I included them in the entry to test (wp) . Would they censor them too? No, they didn’t. (wp) isn’t as fun as Yahoo!360° but it’s definitely serious and free.
Notice: the links don’t work. My Yahoo!360° times are over. I like Vietnam and I hope they have a good time using Yahoo!360°.

Update 1 ღ°:
THE PHOTOS THAT Y!360 CENSORED and blacklisted my blog! 😛 Were they so shocking!?! 😛

Update 2 ღ° : Read about Y!360.blog in the Wikipedia.

«Yahoo! 360° was a personal communication portal operated by Yahoo!. It was similar to other social networking sites and while text on the site still described it as being in beta testing, in fact development has ended and the site is no longer active. Long after support ended, the promised replacement social network site has never materialized. In May 2009 Yahoo! announced that Yahoo! 360° service will be officially closed on July 13, 2009 as Yahoo! developers aimed to «focus their efforts on the new profile on Yahoo».[1] Users are given options to move their Yahoo! 360° information and blog to the new profile before this deadline.»

Old entry updated on November 10, 2012.

The same things over again, just a few newer thoughts…

Roof over our heads for the winter in Ikaria
.
So again I am taken in to spend the winter
.
room
.
and again I hope this old roof  above our heads holds, because if not,
I and my friend Elina Picking Olives 1
who I have been picking olives with, will have to find a shelter, something maybe like this.
.

an eventuality that’s making us laugh and think about the life of one of the patron saints of this island, Saint Theoktisti of Lesbos, an ascet whose adventurous life you can read in Paros life magazine in two issues: St. Theoktisti (part i) and St. Theoktisti (part ii) She seemed to be an Aegean version of St Mary of Egypt
.
Saint Mary, also known as Maria Aegyptica
so the icons testify
Poor little thing, she had escaped the pirates and she was living in the forests (!!!) of Paros all naked and wild, trusting only to God until near the end of her life she was discovered by a pious hunter who gave her a christian burial. Later her bones were considered holly and miraculous and they somehow ended up in Ikaria.
.
After the proliferate, here’s the asceticAbout the old convent that those bones were kept (until they disappeared and probably hidden somewhere for safety) Eleni has written a few lines in her blog long ago but they are still valid:
.
(At Theoskepasti, the old mushroom shaped chapel of St Theoktisti in Ikaria) «…the natural, human and divine connect and there are some typical Ikarian concepts involved too, such as balance (the rock), poverty (obvious), economy (obvious too), integration and harmony with nature (though it’s by no means small, you can’t see it until you are actually there). So I’d call this a “lowlight” an Ikarian highlight!«
.
.Devil's nuns Ikaria
Anyway, I hope that we won’t become too ascetic this year or any other year. It’s as thorny here as to make any serious ascet envious…
Yet Immortality will have to wait.Skywatcher
And (though it’s tempting) we won’t be Miss Anielas either

We’d better repair that roof the soonest possible ’cause our boyfriends are coming to visit!!!

Φτιάχνοντας μια Λίμνη στο Φαράγγι (1)


 

.

Inspect site

.

The Making Of (της Λίμνης)

.

Το πρώτο είναι να έχεις έναν καλό τύπο για αρχηγό.

Yorgos and the Lentisk
.

Το δεύτερο είναι να κατέβεις στο φαράγγι.

'Project Otter' -where exactly are we going?

Το τρίτο είναι να διαλέξεις μια καλή (υπάρχουσα) λίμνη.

Το μέρος πρέπει να είναι ωραίο για ένα λόγο παραπάνω: για να εμπνέει τους δουλευτές. Ως γνωστόν, ο σωστός χώρος και οι καλές συνθήκες εργασίας ανεβάζουν την παραγωγικότητα. Πόσο μάλλον όταν δεν υπάρχει μισθός κι οι δουλευτές δουλεύουν τζάμπα (εθελοντές), ο χώρος πρέπει να είναι και γαμώ.

'Project Otter' # 2 - inspect site
.

Το τέταρτο είναι να μην κολλήσετε στα «τεχνικά προβλήματα». Όταν υπάρχουν χέρια κι άνθρωποι, ΤΕΧΝΙΚΑ ΠΡΟΒΛΗΜΑΤΑ ΔΕΝ ΥΠΑΡΧΟΥΝ!

log 2nd, take #1
.

Το πέμπτο είναι να βάλετε ξερούς κορμούς εγκάρσια στο ρεύμα.

Το έκτο είναι να βάλετε πέτρες και βράχια ανάμεσα στους κορμούς

.
The dam taking a shape
.

Το έβδομο είναι να μαζεύετε από το βυθό άμμο και βότσαλα για να μπουν μετά ανάμεσα στους βράχους και τους κορμούς σαν «γέμιση».

Work like Chinese girls
.

Το όγδοο είναι… να έχετε τη βοήθεια των ξωτικών που θα σας φέρουν μερικές μαγικές «πέτρες-κλειδιά»

Φοίβος -take #2

Διάβασε τη συνέχεια…

Να κι εγώ (to agrimi) εδώ από κάτω, ενώ περιμένω
να ανέβουν καινούριες φωτογραφίες στο Φλικρ.

Καλησπέρα! Πολύ όμορφο το blog σου, έχει κάτι από το μυστήριο της Ικαρίας. Είσαι από τη Κρήτη και ταλαιπωρήθηκες ψυχικά εκεί πολύ. Μου είπες για την απόπειρα βιασμού και λυπήθηκα πολύ. Ελπίζω στην Ικαρία να βρήκες περισσότερη φυσική και λιγότερη ανθρώπινη αγριάδα.

@ΑΚΚ: μπουχου-χου… επειδή ξέρω να φτιάχνω μηχανάκια και υδραυλικά, όταν μου κάτσει και κάνω κάτι αρτίστικο, με λένε «μαστοράκι», δεν με λένε «καλλιτέχνις». Μπουχου-χου… Άδικε ντουνιά!

Tέλειο! Not bad at all for a Doorgirl 🙂
Μπράβο για το πρώτο. Για το τρίτο να εξηγήσεις asap το λόγο που φτάξαμε μια τεχνητή λίμνη. Μεγάλο ~τεράστιο~ ΜΠΡΑΒΟ για το τέταρτο. Και βέβαια όλα τα λεφτά είναι στο όγδοο. Πραγματικά τον αγάπησα τον Φοίβο. Και πραγματικά «η άλλη διάσταση» είναι πολύ σημαντική για τέτοια έργα.
Αχ, τρέχω τώρα να φορτώσω φωτογραφίες στο Φλικρ.

Πολύ καλή δουλειά! Αν θέλετε βοήθεια πάντως εγώ είμαι διαθέσιμη να ψάχνω να βρω τα ξωτικά. Τρία καλοκαίρια έζησα τις πιο πολλές ώρες κι εγώ κι η παρέα μου όλοι μαζί γυμνοί σε κείνο κει το μέρος. 😳

@AKK : Ωχ ναι, πρέπει να εξηγήσω τα τεχνικά. Το είχα ξεχάσει. Με είχε παρασύρει η ομορφιά των φωτογραφιών και της φάσης γενικότερα. Αλλά δεν πρέπει να μας παρεξηγήσουν ότι παίζουμε σαν τα παιδάκια με τα χώματα τις πέτρες και τα νεράκια χωρίς λόγο. Έτσι;
@ elmamelenia : Σε ξέρω, σ’ έχω δει και έχεις ειδικότητα. Είσαι πανέμορφη. Τα ξωτικά σε θέλουν.

Πριν από μερικές μέρες που έμεινα στο ποτάμι γνώρισα τον Φοίβο. Απίστευτο παιδί με ακόρεστη δίψα για τα πάντα! Ελπίζω αν καταφέρω και ξανακατέβω Ικαρία φέτος να τον βρώ πάλι..

Not Briar Rose but Esor RairB

Girl inside Thorns

.

Who doesn’t know the tale of The Sleeping Beauty ?.

Here you have the entry of the encyclopedia; here you have the classic tale; and here you have a modern (not Disney) cartoon (with an unexpected ending).

I am the opposite; a different version of the tale where the girl wakes up in the middle of the thorns, does not wait for nobody to save her, puts on her father’s dungarees and starts a walk across the deadly hedge. Skeletons of big ironclad knights are all over, tangled in the thorns, but she goes on slowly –very slowly- without breaking or cutting a single thorny branch, so the plants are not angry and do not attack her. She is swift and supple and she moves on and on. It took her a whole day, but there at last she is out of the hedge –on her own.

Since you have read up to here, I think you deserve a happy end. Here it is:

spiky bushes ikaria 1

.

Once out of the thorn jungle EsoR RairB meets Doubting Thomas who was standing there, doubting whether to enter the thorns or not. He was thinking : Maybe this is a trap; a conspiracy to get rid of all the knights of the country. I rather wait until somebody comes back; I will ask him what he saw. Maybe there is no girl in there at all. Maybe it’s a hoax.”

But there I was in front of him! We fell in love with each other and we have been together ever since.

What I most love D. T. for is when he touches me with his fingertips looking for tiny scratches and scars all over my skin.

~ Doubting Thomas touches wonderfully ~ ❤

___________________________________________

The palace with everybody asleep inside and the hedge of thorn bushes with the roses and the skeletons is a museum now. We can’t live on just love –even us fairy-tale beings nowadays. When the curse is over, we will see what we do….

Eleni (‘isl_gr’) who likes clothes (in both the literally and metaphorically) “dressed us up” in this tale in Ikaria last spring. Only the “Doubting Thomas touches wonderfully” is mine; it’s kinda cheap «meta-title» perhaps, but we thought it’s all right. We are not rich folks anyway.

Friday March 23, 2007 – 10:57am (EET)

Wow! The story of Waking Beauty – complete with romantic ending! She, Eleni, who has her-own Thorn-Myth, seems to have found the perfect costumes for you!

Friday March 23, 2007 – 11:07am (CET)

.

The only problem is DT did not come and save you, what kind of a knight is he? He should have figured a way, either with the flash of his sword or by cunning. Maybe you love him because he’s a tragic figure.

Friday March 23, 2007 – 07:02am (PDT)

.

And the winner is …Greg!!!
In the play Doubting Thomas features as The Undecisive and ever Doubting Knight. It’s a funny play. But Nana didn’t stress the hilarious side. You see, Mr D.T. is an actual guy -her boyfriend!..
