My mindset has changed like my environment – is there a connection? Not to be denied in any way!

It is very uncommon in Germany, in my regular life, to not know what was to do and what was to happen. Since being in Greece I learned to let everything occur when it would. When we were told to come at 10am the next day, we didn’t know what we were about to do or how long we would be away. No one knew. Sometimes in the very beginning we asked where we were driving. The ranger shrugged and laughed – it didn’t matter. This is only one beautiful thing that lets you ease into the day. Don’t ask me, if it’s a Tuesday or Friday or the exact date or time. it doesn’t matter too much. It is now and no more.
