HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE JOY SHARED


Kefalonia wedding Emma and Neal Fulls

 If the internet is a wonderful thing, blogging must be its most rewarding highlight. Four years ago today, on her one year anniversary, I wrote about the lovely bride who wore flip flops.
Today, some thousands of page views and an off-blog, real-life, friendship later, Emma and Neal are celebrating their 5th anniversary. The words of Lord Byron I quoted four years ago seem all the more relevant today; I dedicate them to my wonderful friends once again, both in gratitude for including me in their joy, and as a wish for their life together:
 "To have joy one must share it. Happiness was born a twin.

KEFALONIA "WALTZ OF THE FLOWERS" IN DESKTOP MODE

Thank you all for staying with the blog through all my changes in residence, mood, posting frequency, broken promises, delays, writer's block, etc etc. Life happens, as they say, and it interferes and holds us back from doing that which we love as we have to concentrate on that which we have to do. Anyway, it has been simply awesome to see that, despite all obstacles, the blog's friends have stuck around. I will make no more promises, set no new deadlines... let me surprise you!
As a small token of my appreciation, at the bottom of this post is a link where you can opt to download the image below in higher resolution (1600 X 900 px) and use as desktop background.
It is a loose collage of some of the photos in the "Waltz of the Flowers in Kefalonia" video. Enjoy!

WALTZ OF THE FLOWERS IN KEFALONIA

A sultry Spring dance of colors and scents...
When the prettiest season waltzes the island in a passionate frenzy
of uninhibited color and boundless improvisation...
A collection of images I've taken on Kefalonia over the years, set to the mesmerizing music of Tchaikovsky (Waltz of the Flowers).
Enjoy!

It's nice to be back, by the way!
Note: I made no attempt to process the original images, out of respect of how unruly, untamed, and random the Spring flowers and blossoms of Kefalonia are.
