“Eleftheria y Thanatos” (“Freedom or Death”) The first woman Admiral

How come I didn’t know that?! … I’m always excited when I discover fascinating women from history of whom I was previously unaware. And in this case, I have to thank Joanna Lumley’s delightful and informative TV documentary series about Greece for introducing me to the extraordinary Admiral Laskarina Bouboulina. On following up the episode, I discovered Bouboulina’s links to Russia that added another dimension of interest – her connection with the diplomat Count Stroganov[off] - who may, or…

Yiannis Moralis in 1975

This is the look I recall. It's not my photo. I met him in Aegina in August 1968 with my stepmother, to whom he'd been married. Dad asked me to drive to Aegina, so we'd have a car for the family. I did the journey from England in four days - my third visit to Greece. I knew Yiannis Moralis' reputation. I've seen his portraits of Maria since - one on a card circulated to everyone at her funeral in 2005 at St.Sophia's in Moscow Road, Bayswater, her body laid with my Dad's ashes at Kensal Green…

George Seferis, born  in 1900: “The strange thing about imagery is that a great deal of it is subconscious, and sometimes it appears in a poem, and nobody knows wherefrom this emerged. But it is rooted, I am certain, in the poet’s subconscious life, often of his childhood, and that’s why I think it is decisive for a poet: the childhood that he has lived.” Portrait Quotes, Nobel Prize In Literature, Greek Culture, Human Dignity, Author, Georgia, Books, Greeks, Writers
