The Young, The Rich, The Beautiful

I just found them. There was one general area on my map that I have yet to venture into, Kolonaki. I got my trusty map and headed out. I had visited a museum in that general direction, so I sort of knew where it was. It is a trendy area tucked in behind all of the museums and government buildings. Minus a “take your life in your own hands” crossing of a couple of streets, it’s a short walk for me.

The window shopping is yummy! china and Chrystal, Italian leather goods, furs, shoes and more shoes and clothes. Tons of beautiful clothes. One store had an entire window done in beige and white, my two favorite colors.

I came upon an uphill, cobblestone side street lined with coffee shops, all sidewalk seating. Not even a motorcylce could fit up that street. It was packed with gorgeous, young people drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and strolling through their IPads. It was a magazine add and I was walking through it. Now, ask me if I was gawking so much that I tripped on the uneven sidewalk and almost fell on my face. Yup. I manged to catch myself mid-air, but I almost bit the dust right there in the magazine add.

I stopped in at the grocery and it was so different from the one in my neighborhood. It’s like when I go to the Von Maur on the North side and it just pisses me off that they have more options than the Greenwood store. The yogurt was in tiny glass crocks. I bought some cause I thought they were cute. I was proud because I ordered deli trukey and figured out how to weigh an avacado by myself and didn’t cause a scene.

We’re headed out to find a new place for dinner. I’ll try not to fall on my face. The adventure continues.

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.
