Up there on the mountain…

CCC_9292 [Up there on the mountain]

It was in the hot month of August when a friend of mine and I set out early in the morning to explore the mountainous area not far from the historic town of Karavrita in high hopes that, besides exploring the area, we might find a spot of photographic interest. Indeed, in the middle of the day we found this chapel standing on a high hill and overlooking a beautiful gorge below. Perhaps not of much interest to my blog viewer today but when I saw it, it triggered emotions to the blogger. It reminded me of a little song that all of us - children at Elementary school - had to learn and chant about 70 years ago [Yes, the number is correct!] I can still recite or chant it as easily as 70 years ago.
For some reason, I feel urged to remind
my Greek friends of that song [in its original form] and also to render it in simple, non-poetic, English for the sake of my non-Greek visitors who might want to have a better understanding of the blogger's emotions triggered by the chapel.

    1. Ρένα μου συμπάθα με. Ύστερα από πολύ καιρό, μόλις χθες βράδυ, είδα το μήνυμά σου. Συχνό φαινόμενο τώρα τελευταία!

      Δεν ξέρω τι σου θύμισα, αλλά ό,τι και να είναι περισσότερη σημασία έχει το ότι μπορούμε ακόμα να θυμόμαστε!
