| long story short | more than a place to stay | a home away from home |

[..] Everyone, without a singe exception, had a great laugh with my desire to build a stone build home and a self-contained guesthouse during the early 90s, since brick is the easiest material for modern constructions. But it has happened as hoped. It was built by local artisans; with local stone. It was characterized as a model dwelling for the Cyclades and it was a low budget story needed much tenacity and loads of personal labor [..]

My darling Serifos [the following text was published in the municipality's book for the island, 2012]

Decades ago, going down the dirt road to Platis Gialos, I fell in love with Serifos: red soil and schist stones till the sea and in the shadow of the tamarisks, the flavors of Nikoulias’ wife, the mother of many smiling daughters and sons. That same unforgettable autumn, I fell in love with a boulderstone in Rammos; some time later I loved Margarita, the cook, and her husband Giorgi,s the fisherman, at the edge of Livadi; a winter afternoon I discovered Panagia, the small village up the hill and the grocery store of Vitos and Antonia, who stole another piece of my heart; a hot summer noon found me swimming and enchanted in the nook with the green waters down in Vagia; a windy sunday I found shelder in Moustakias’ cook house, in Koutalas and a hot spring saturday I wished to become a fish in Lia beach.

The secrets of the place got revealed little by little, as is always the case. Secrets like a sunset in Liomantra, a local fair in St. Giannis Prodromos with the "ktitores"* tending you as if at home; another local fair in St. Thekla with the sky being lighted by the lightnings and -every year unfailingly- in the fair of Sotiras at Kalo Ampeli with the youth dancing balos and the elders on the violin and on the lute.

Moments of happiness in an island that was not blessed with forests and rivers, but with a barren land -hence the island's official name Serifos- with rocks and iron -hence the appellation, the iron island. How could you know these things when you first arrive: the precious clusters of bοulderstones; or the tradition in metallurgy; or the tiny one-room stone houses that you still see scattered in the plateaus or conveniently positioned in the furrows, that are called “cells” and they were the rooms where the miners spent their nights.

A wandering in a place like this wonderful island that I made it my land, needs you to be ready as long prepared and open to encounters, a flâneur, as Charles Baudelaire calls it, a wanderer, a promenader, a traveler. And then you might be the lucky one who will taste grandma Sevasti's caper, the local homemade wine or the cheese that nestles down in the ground with herbs until it reaches your palate, a full moon in August or a night with stars that you think you can touch them if you just extend your arms. Gifts of a rock in the Aegean that will offer them to you if as long as you stay there, you find something from yourself to give back.

V.T

* "ktitores" are called the locals who have the responsibility to take care of the maintenance of the church throughout the year. They are also the ones that prepare and serve the delicious local treats that are served to everyone, the day and night of the fair.

Won an award in Arts and Letters with one of the latter, her "Letter from Dublin", a novel (1997). Before then: studies in History, historic missions, historic Sources published and historic stews with Monologues, Articles, Short Stories, Radio Programmes and Luminous Boxes thrown in and served up every now and then in newspapers and magazines, on the national radio, at the Benaki Museum on Piraios Street, the ICA in London and elsewhere. The radio programme Fairy Tale Salad went out every day. An hors d’oeuvre that had whet the public’s appetite when she served up a second course: a novel, "Life worth the candle", (2000), and two travel books, Amsterdam and Southern Morocco, (2001) which did their thing in the shop window sans rival of the Atheneaum Boekhandel & Nieuwscentrum in Amsterdam, while Ypsilon Publications whipped her book COOKIES out of the oven March 2009. A lover and orchestrator of alchemic situations, she devotes herself to pronouns as well as articles—to the we, me, you, him and them who are helping her set up LUDENS LABS, an outward-looking situation for those who believe art is as serious as play. During the last years along with her work for her new novel, she works for The Writer's Home & Guest-home in Serifos
