@Dimitrios: Να' σαι καλά Δημήτρη!

Η φωτιά έφθασε μέχρι και την Ν. Πεντέλη. Ούτε πολύ κοντά αλλά όμως και ούτε και πολύ μακρυά. Η ατμόσφαιρα ήταν πολύ αποπνικτική, άρρωστο φως, λες και ήταν δύση ηλίου, ο ήλιος πορτοκαλής κι αυτός, μαύρα σύννεφα και τριγύρω πέταγε σαν χιονάκι ψιλό στάχτη. Ζω εδω με τον άντρα μου από το 1996, αλλά ήταν η πρώτη φορά για μένα που ένοιωσα την απειλή της φωτιάς... Να φανταστείς, χθές πακετάραμε λίγα πράγματα...
Σήμερα πήρα από την απλώστρα 2 ρούχα και ήταν καλυμμένα από στάχτη.Ολη τη νύχτα σιγόκαιγαν εστίες υπο έλεγχο σε όλη την κορυφογραμμή της Πεντέλης, ευτυχώς υπήρχε ολη τη νύχτα ισχυρή πυροσβεστική δύναμη. Τα αεροπλάνα συνεχίζουν να πετάνε ρίψεις νερού, δεν πρέπει να έχει σβήσει εντελώς ακόμα. Αυτό που με ανησυχεί περισσότερο είναι οι αναζοπυρώσεις γιατί μου φαίνεται οτι σήμερα φυσάει πιο πολύ από χθές...
Πάντως σήμερα σέρνομαι, σηκώθηκα σχετικά αργά και παρόλ' αυτά νιώθω τόσο κουρασμένη....Ψυχολογικό....
Σ'ευχαριστώ πολύ Δημήτρη!!!!!!

17 Aug 2007 3:05pm

@Evi: Η φωτιά είναι τρομερό πράγμα. Η φετινή χρονιά από τις χειρότερες, τι να πώ; Οφείλουμε σαν κοινωνία να ΦΡΟΝΤΙΣΟΥΜΕ περισσότερο το περιβάλλον, δεν είναι δαπάνη είναι επενδυση ΖΩΗΣ, ΦΙΛΙΚΑ ΔΗΜΗΤΡΗΣ

Evi from Athens, Greece

@Dimitrios: Ξέχασα... Η φωτιά επίσης έφθασε και στα ανω Μελίσσια. Να δούμε πως θα'ναι ο φετινός χειμώνας.

17 Aug 2007 3:12pm

@Evi: Μακάρι, αλλα οι βροχές.... εύχομαι να μην έχετε προβλήματα, φιλικά Δημήτρης

Erik from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

Didn't know that such an old clock could make a good picture, I have a wooden one myself and you just gave me an idea for the end of this week!

21 Aug 2007 9:57pm

@Erik: clik-clic then, regards D

Andrew Gould from Sydney, Australia

Love the clock! There was probably something like this in our house when I was very young. Wish I had it now. So that's the first reason why this is so appealing -- nostalgia in this digital age. You have framed this well and it looks beautifully quaint. I think, though, that I'd have positioned it to avoid the reflection and moved the dark object on the lower right. I don't know where you took this, of course, and I guess it might not have been possible to allow for these things under the circumstances. Still a good one as it is, for sure.

22 Aug 2007 10:42pm

@Andrew Gould: thanks for your comments, it was in a house I rented it. Go on try to find one in an antique shop!
