An Artistic Adventure with Ernest..

Dear Mum and friends.

Woke up yesterday morning. Believe it or not, it was very comfortable and I survived!! Lily seems to be lethargic because of the heat and she's always being chased by the bouncy Dewi so she's not bothered that I snuggle down with her..

Jude, Geoff and I went to Fodele for the day.

We visited El Greco's (Ο Δομηνιχος Θεοτοχοπουλος) old house, which is now a small museum.

He was born in 1541 in Fodele. He trained as a traditional icon painter but then travelled to Venice and trained under Titian. Then he travelled to Madrid and Toledo...he worked ceaselessly and became a genius.....

Do you think that could happen to me????

well you do come from a home with three cats - sh you should be in your comfort zone here.
I'm thriled that you are getting some cultural education and you seem to have calmed down a little ? perhaps it's the heat or perhaps you are growing up & this gap year in Blogland WAS the right thing fr you.

Take care in the heat xx miss you xx love you xx ( OK I'm going now ...sob sob...)
