Blue…as the sky is blue, a hot blue seen on a scorching day at noon. Blue…as the Aegean Sea is blue, a shimmering blue under the never ending sun. Blue on doors and shutters, on small boats in the harbor, on café signs, on domes of churches in the dusty hills. Blue against the glare of white stucco buildings, blue against the sheen of white marble steps and sidewalks.
blue and white bowlancient history takes shape
in my hands
