I have 2 pieces to share with you, one about the contradicting states of pregnancy and abortion and one about child raising, and for some reason just don’t feel its time yet, to post them, they are pretty personal as well, so maybe I feel a little shy at the moment, posted a few quite generic ideas and thoughts, methods and poems, and now… although have more of those too, feel there is something I should do before pouring out more words on this blog… that is: presenting myself!
So, hello everybody, I am a 33 years old, half Italian, half Greek woman, living in Greece for quite a while now, after having studied in England and fallen in love with the language.
My studies have nothing to do with what I do for living, I studied European Law, Politics and Economics, think I chose those topics because since a very early stage in my life felt quite appalled by these words, and just wanted to undress the ghost and see what was really behind it all, getting me angered every time they come up into discussion.
I have a Production studio, create TV shows, advertisement, books, brochures, etc.
For the shows I do the direction, production, postproduction… everything that’s needed to get the show ready for viewing. Don’t work for third parties, so, don’t worry, I’m not trying to find clients for my business here, only produce my own shows, have got 2 of them on air in Greece, one is a cooking program teaching about food being our first medicine, healthy cooking and health through knowledge of what to eat and when to eat it. The 2nd one is a talk show concerning herbal remedies for beauty and health.
I am shortly coming out with my third baby show, hopefully by the end of the year, fingers crossed.
I am a single mom, my son is going to be 3 at the beginning of September, and am yet adjusting to this new “condition” that is, being a mother… Believe I’m getting there, slowly and surely though! :-)
Also, have been a vegetarian since 1998, not vegan, can do without meat not without cheese… but I smoke, probably the only fault I have is this, yes, to excuse myself for being a smoker, to my parents who will forever hope I’ll cut tomorrow, I do often state that I do it not to create myself any false hopes of being too perfect! It’s the best lie I’ve come up so far, but please be so kind as to share any better lines if you have any, think my excuse has grown old!
I was a very curious child, and as it happens to people that hunt for invisible treasures not knowing what exactly they are searching for and where, got in trouble quite early in life (and MUCH), so at some point, when all begun to explode in my face, found shelter in a Page… Started writing about everything I felt like speaking about, begun analyzing me, writing became my self-therapy… It has been 12 years now of systematic daily work, during which time I got to experience myself in a way not many people nowadays do, understanding that all I was searching for, wasn’t outside, rather in me, realizing I am my own treasure!
I believe I had a rebirth 12 years ago, as a structure to itself and now after much designing and crafting, I am attempting an opening gala, a step forward in the transformation of this creation into a structure to the whole!
My parents, which I begun appreciating later in life, are helping me very much with my Son, if it weren’t for them, I don’t believe I could have done it to both be a single-mother and run my own business as also meditate with Page daily and have the time for Blogging as well!!!
In my life I don’t have everything solved, I actually have tons of work in progress in every single field, and I’m very far from being wise, or enlighten. I’m a cruiser, a traveler of the human mind, the human soul and the human body, at once.
I like dancing from one reality of mine to the next and to embrace them all into one dancing move, attempting togetherness in every way I can, “within and without” myself, regard this as a skill we all have and can master for the purpose of making our days brighter and happier, giving our lives a deeper meaning. One that isn’t for sanctity and that doesn’t follow any particular current. Rather a meaning whose depths tackle the broader understanding of our very own selves. Realizing we all hold marvels inside and that we can all do extraordinary things. Becoming truer to our nature and consequently always less confined by social standards and complexes; thus keeping well away from futile and truly time wasting conflicts (haven’t yet reached this point)!
We have all grown “bugs” along the way, but we have also grown into “cultivators” of our secret gardens, of our internal territories, those holding all the flowers we create, think of and feel, and for this reason I retain it plausible to say we are all capable of, at least, confining the bugs and their destructive tendencies!
Well, this is me and my general beliefs, really, the outline, there is more though, some experience, some ideas, some philosophy, some poetry, some tales, and few other things… :-)
