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.
