If you read this blog quite often, you may have noticed that I have some time to write about Greece's current economic issues and our own finacial straights.
The thing is, we have the bank statements piling up, right on my desk as I type, the bills piling up, bank people bullying us, a bank seasing our few savings, the shop's turnout being 1/4 of that of the same period last year.
So, why are we open yet? Why am I posting beautiful clothes and interiors?
Because that is the best for my sanity and the sanity of my family.
Because after the trial of being for the first time in your life faced by issues a respectable and lawful citizen such as your parents and grandparents never had to face, and having to face ever changing laws, one bill after the other after the other, you have one choice:
keep walking, keep living.
We put our faith in God, we put our lives into God's hands.
In better financial times it seamed an exageration to my rational mind. We will work hard, we will manage. Now, I totally believe there is nothing more to be done about the ever added taxes and special contributions we are being asked to pay.
We keep walking, we keep doing our bit and hope that God will provide.
If you have missed the issue before or rely totally on mainstream media, I post the links to two recent articles, one in Vogue Italia, one in The Guardian, that are worth reading, plus some readers' comments.
When all is said and done, good beats evil and light beats darkness.
