Mr Steve ...

Its been my pleasure these last few weeks to share some time with Steve ...



A gentleman and new friend, Originating from Canada - he is a traveller. A former tour guide, he is still travelling the world, and tells me he is 86 years young.

We have shared coffee, on a number of occasions, this last month or so. A laugh, a joke and a few life experiences.

His Mother back on the prairies of Canada, at the time of the great depression, said 'she did not know what to do with him, as he had fancy ideas of travelling the world'. Someone said, to her 'if you did not want him to have big ideas, then you should never have brought him a radio' ...

Just goes to show how something we now take for granted, can change your life forever. I will miss Steve when he departs tomorrow, with his partner over the harbour via London to pastures new.

Kalo Taxedi to a gentleman and friend, who I am lucky to say, crossed my path here 'on a green island in the aegean' ...
