KAIDENS P.O.V:So this was the infamous Juniper. I'd have to say she was quite beautifully charming. The colors she wore complimented her rosy cheeks. As she gave me a tour, I couldn't help but stare, she was amazing. "You know if you have any questions you can ask instead of just staring at me." She said in a soft and cool voice. "Ah yeah right, so where am I Staying at?" She walked me to the third floor where there was a corridor and it had four rooms. "The building goes under ground and the top story is where the athletics will be held." In here is where you'll be sharing with Josiah and Erik. " Right sounds good." We then finished with the tour and we went back down, after a week of pack it was already the orientation ball tomorrow I was going to have to find a tuxedo ASAP.#sims #sims4 #simsstory #whatwillhappen #mystery #beautiful #mayorsdaughter #craxton #love #lust #loveandlust

KAIDENS P.O.V:"Well I'm not supposed to give out information about our students, but we have a student who is considered the third best in the country for the art section, she specializes in paintings. At the ball we'll be taking in pictures from her and we are getting pictures from a local museum to show. We will also be auctioning off some of them as well. The students must wear there most fine outfits to the ball to." "Ah I see, and how many student are at this school? It looks quite massive." "Well we are very selective and student must present there best artwork/ best talents and the school board looks over what they have done. The tests we give are quite hard and since the school has only been around for less then two years, we only have two hundred+ students." "Oh wow! That's not to many." I replied "Well we did come to find out if my son had made the school board satisfied." "Ah yes of course. Well let me look up really quickly, ah yes he scored an 87.4 one of our most highest grades." "Well done Kaid, so since he specializes in art will he be working with the girl?" "Does it matter father?" "Why yes to me it does." "Well since we only have a few students who specialise in painting yes." "May I ask her name before going in blindsided?" "Ah yes, Juniper Patison." And you will be sharing a room with Erik lander and Josiah Craves." Huh Juniper, interesting..........#sims #sims4 #simsstory #whatwillhappen #mystery #beautiful #mayorsdaughter #craxton #love #lust #loveandlust

That mountain once more. Mt. Elijah above Ano Boularii, in the deep Mani - late afternoon. 
The face of this mountain looks due west and consequently gets lit up by the lowering sun. It looks exaggerated, but is probably even more luminous in reality. These mountains are utterly desolate , but look stunning as they catch the light.

"When God had finished making the world, he had a sack of stones left over and he emptied it here..." Mani, Patrick Leigh Fermor p.112
Its that mountain again. Mt. Elijah, crackling in the midday sun. The great cliff on top like a huge pie crust, cast deep blue shadows while the scree seemed to sparkle in the light.

«Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love» - Rumi. I enjoyed so much last week, a private viewing of the very beautiful exhibition “Charmed lives in Greece” at the @britishmuseum , organised by the @hicd.greece, the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy in the UK. The viewing was followed by a lecture by Ian Collins. An exhibition you definitely want to see - it focuses on the lives and work of three extraordinary men, revealing a fascinating story of art and friendship in post-war Greece! Many thanks to my colleague, amazing Greek pianist @stavros_dritsas, who took the first photo you see of this album :-)) 👍😍

The Poet's Church - Vlacherna.12th century. In the bay of Mezapos. Midday sun.
Mentioned in Greenhalgh and Eliopoulos as "dreadfully dilapidated... the arches of its dome are tall and graceful, the tiles have long since come off the top and left a pathetically ridiculous impression, as if Elizabeth I, when old and bald, had appeared at court in a perfect ruff without her wig. Yet the very desolation and melancholy...in so beautiful a setting would have stimulated Byron or Shelley to write verses..." P.103 'Deep into Mani'1985.
In 2017 it was exactly the same; a romantic ruin, magically alone above an expanse of violet sea and distant mountains.

Charmed lives in Greece: lovely (free) exhibition at the British Museum concerning the lifelong friendship between painters Niko Ghika and John Craxton, and the writer Patrick Leigh Fermor.
This is 'Still Life with Sailors' (1980-1985) by John Craxton, painted when he was living in Chania, Crete.

John Craxton’s Arcadian paintings of his life in the Grecian islands have finally arrived at Osborne Samuel after years of careful planning and behind the scene manoeuvring. A happy blend of major late works that show Craxton at his peak and fascinating early experiments from the 1940s and 1950s.
‘John Craxton in Greece: The Unseen Works’ continues till 8 June.
