Long Time No See

Going for a special coffee in Kalamaki
Evening sky over the sea near Faliron

When I was about to leave work yesterday, I made a phone call to my friend Φωτεινή (Fotini, or Fofi for short) from old times, back when I was living in Athens for the first time. We haven't seen each other for what? 15? 16? or 17 years? A very long time. From work I took the bus and went to Faliron, from where I walked to Kalamaki. I could have taken another bus of course, but I had plenty of time and the sea was a sight (click on the picture for a bigger view).

Then we finally met again, went for coffee and had lots of stories to tell. I had the pleasure to see that she's doing very well, turned out to become a successful and busy businesswoman. There were lots of moments when I was just struck by the situation and probably couldn't open my mouth and say a word. Let me say just so much now: That was a very long time.

Re: Long Time No See

While I was reading your post, I felt a sting in my heart and lots of memories rushing back to mind. Memories of friends with whom I shared important experiences and key events. Sometimes, I really do wish we had a time travel machine that could take us back to those instants so unique.

... And now I'm just in the right mood to listen to Diana Krall's latest album or maybe some Radiohead? Nah, let's stay "positive".

Thank you Bebu for this post.
