Happy Winter Solstice! Season’s Greetings from the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes.
NOTE: Since our trip last fall to Greece to research more settings for my novel-in-progress, THE ARIADNE DISCONNECT, Thor and I knew we had to return to this magical region. My first entry in this new blog series posted here on Saturday, 10/20/2018. It gives an overview of our rambles from Athens to seven islands in the Dodecanese and Cyclades groups, ending our ferry-hopping pilgrimage on the anciently sacred island of Delos.
Thor and I peered inside this small Greek Orthodox church in the seaside village of Charaki, Rhodes. We weren’t expecting such beautiful and elaborate embellishments, and we entered into the hush to enjoy the sacred space that welcomed us as visitors. Whatever tradition you honor during these long nights of the turning of seasons, may you find light and a serene space to refresh your spirit!
Last time, Thor and I left you as we were arriving on Rhodes from the nearby island of Karpathos. I’ll be back soon with Part 9 in the photo-journal of our island travels — as soon as the tech wizards at Book View Cafe stabilize our website to accommodate more photos. Please stay tuned, and stay with our authors as we write and bring you more ebooks, blog posts, and more!
