I’m back from a brief sojourn in the Greek islands, where everyone’s primary occupation was staying cool – and sane – in temperatures which were hitting the low forties. Not so much of a problem when you’re there to relax – a short walk from the shade of a convenient tree, or your umbrella, into the divine, cool blueness of the sea, and you’re laughing – but not so easy for those working for a living in the heat. I walked very little, taking the air-conditioned bus instead; I didn’t eat much either, though I did drink rather a lot of my favourite peach iced tea, and a few glasses of chilled retsina too.
And I signed a few books, for people who’d chosen tales of Hermes as their holiday reading (thank you!). And I was very pleased to meet a friend of the very talented Chris Dawson, who took all the fabulous photographs on my website. I was pleased to send Chris a copy of The Lady of Sorrows, with the message that – in my humble opinion – his latest pictures (of beautiful Andros) are some of the best he’s ever done. Have a look for yourself on Chris’s website – meantime, here’s a sample…
