Posted by
Dimitrios (ATHENS, Greece) on 15 November 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

-Oh hi there, how are you?
-Fine Mr Seagull, fine, a bit cold but fine.
-Where do you come from? You look European.
-Cool guess Mr Seagull, I am Greek from Athens.
-Oh Athens, I studied classics at university you know. Plato, Aristotle, Socrates and Homer.
-You did what!!!!
-Yes, in a previous life I was a professor here in Boston, I was so much in love with this city that I made a last wish to be reborn here again. The good Lord granted my wish with some minor alteration of course.
-So what is the feeling in being able to fly?
-Oh my good fellow, it is exhilarating, absolute freedom, clear air, lots of fish near by to dive to!
-This is fantastic, have a great day Mr. Seagull.
-You too Mr. Greek-traveler. See you in the SKY!
