Sightseeing...or maybe cityseeing?

The city where I live in Greece is an idylic place to stay for various reasons.Although,the most important one for me is the fact that it combines the beauty of a mountain with the vastness of the sea.The result of this magical combination is an absolutely stunning view.
As I observe the city lights while the colours of the sunset are drawing the sky,I am contemplating about the power of distance.When we're in a big city,sometimes we feel as if the crowd or the traffic consumes us.Everything seems so huge for a tiny little human like ourselves.
However,when you get to climp up to a mountain...the whole city now fits into your hands.It's like everything that has been frightened you,is now nothing but a wonderful view standing right in front of eyes.
When I see this magnificent landscape,I come face to face with one major question:what is really significant in this life and whether I have distributed my energy and interest onto the things that really matter or not.There are so many great things out there,such as a wonderful view,or the sea,or the trees,which we conceive as something given and we continually keep taking them for granted.In this way we ruin our lives,because every day less and less things are able to keep us satisfied...!All I'm saying is that we shouldn't just pass ''simple'' things by,because if we just take a moment to look closer at them,we'll see something that will surprise us or something extraordinary that we had never seen before due to our rush!It's never too late to catch up with the things you used to miss up to now :)

The really exciting thing about black and white photos is that somehow they have the power to take us back in time.What can I say?Magic!

Do you see something up in the sky as I do?I think there's a huge eagle or maybe a pigeon flying over the city.Oh,yes,I am absolutely possitive about that...

When the sun is finally lost behind the mystique clouds,I can't help but wonder how many people actually live in this city and how many of them need help right now?We admire the magnificence of something so impressive such as the view of a city full of lights and colours,but what we really don't see is how many people might suffer,or put up with poverty and many people feel left out or concidered as the surplus population of this world.On the other hand,as I realise that these thoughts are way too depressing,I think of how many children might be borned right now,or how many people are getting married at the same time...well that's better.Of course this doesn't mean that we should pass by people who need our help or pretend like noone suffers on this planet.I believe that it's our moral obligation to be conscious about what's happening around us,and help as much as we can whoever might needs us because in this way we will be able to to feel trully peaceful.

Peace & Love
