Thirteen years ago today my dear father died.He was 72 years old.I guess he had lots more years to live as he was strong till he got cancer in the lungs caused by amianthosis.That was caused by inhalation of asbestos particles at some point in his life. He had worked at an asbestos factory when he was twelve(!) so the fact that he got sick so many years afterwards was a miracle.
He was a real good father and I miss him so much every day.He loved flowers and the sea and I am sure he would have been very very happy to see me collecting sea glass at my summer house.
This sea glass that has brought so much happiness and sunshine in my life and so many friends.
One of these sea glass friends,dear Ian from England sent me a parcel that arrived today.
It included a lovely yellow decanter stopper(which was a flea market find not a sea glass find) and a suncatcher made by himself and a lovely codd marble,my very first.Codd marbles of course do not exist in Greece.I at first thought the wired art piece was a bracelet!Therefore I photographed it as a piece of jewellery.Anyway....Thank you Ian so much!You made me smile today!
A couple of days ago I received a handwritten letter from my dear Israeli long time pen friend Ruth.Ruth just like me has stopped writing handwritten letters and she made an effort for my sake,thank you Ruth.She has a great blog about books.
