“I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”

Some, almost real, winter time

Oh for the love of god what is it with the cold? Temperature is close to 0 degrees Celsius (freezing point for the laws of physics) and will go below that point this week!
 Ok it's Greece, not Ecuador nor Sweden. However, we get up to 40 - 45 degrees C (105 - 115 F) in summer time and down to -15 or maybe -20 C (5 - -4 F) in winter time, but of course not in the entire country. I live in a big, beautiful, Greek island (I had to say how beautiful this island is) which, during winter, is drowned in humidity and beaten up by the winds. Therefore, the feeling of cold we get here, is like someone is sticking needles into your body which go so deep that when you move, it feels like they're poking your internal organs. Pretty nice description I gave there. Anyhow, at this time of the year and to be exact during the last few days, winter is beginning to show its teeth. That is because February is the coldest and toughest month of the year. Not to mention that the forever-alone-day (Valentine's day) happens to be a day of this particular month. Can't say that it feels like a coincidence. More to come about this not-so-much-forsaken-day when the time is right.
So yes, we're getting ready for the final cold days (doesn't matter if they'll last like 30 days or so) and after that.... oh the joy, oh the happiness, oh the bliss, oh the spring!


  1. Lol... it's all relative isn't it? The coolest it gets here (and only at night) is around 20 C... and that's considered pretty well freezing! We're having cool nights now but pretty soon the hot season will start and I'm just dreading it! Oh no oh no oh no! ;-) x

  2. Where exactly is 'here'? Maybe I should move 'there'!

  3. Jeez I miss winter. I haven't been under 30 degrees C in 6 months.

  4. I love winter...specially in days like this when it was almost 39ºC outside!

  5. What is it with you people? Do you not know winter? Are you all born in tropical and weird countries with light blue seas and white sandy beaches? If so, I don't like you :P
