No Class Friday
June 3, 2011

What a champion idea, no class on Friday. Today has been lovely. Mary and I awakened fairly early and immediately voted on breakfast out. You may have noticed that I haven’t written a word about food or wine since I’ve been here. I just–today–acquired my sea legs, so to speak, and am up for eating and drinking again. We had a nice morning walk, and ate an omelette at Smiley’s. He told us it contained two kinds of sausage and cheese, but I thought one of those sausages looked remarkably like a good old American hot dog chopped up.

We stopped at a bakery on our way home for a fresh loaf of bread for dinner and latern washed a load of clothes that we hung out on the balcony. I felt so European.

UIndy treated The Odyssey students to lunch at a good, old home-style-cookin’ Greek restaurant. The food was all prepared and in sort of like a deli window and we were able to look it over and just point. My stuffed pepper, roasted potatoes and spanakorzio, or spinach and rice, were yummy delicious! The meal was served with a fresh Greek salad, bread, and Tzadziki sauce, which was to die for. The salad tomatoes and cucumbers tasted like they were just picked from the garden. Actually, I think they were.

Tonight, Mary made us Greek chicken vegetable soup with dill and lemon. We shared a bottle of Italian wine from our neighbors to the East and the baguette we bought this morning and it was absolutely delightful. Simple fresh and yummy.

Tomorrow, more sight seeing. Oh, and today, with the help of Mary and Dina, I finalized the arrangements for when BF arrives. Three days in Athens followed by ten days on the Island of Crete. I think we can handle that! The adventure continues. I love it here!

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
