Just came back from my long-anticipated trip to Syros, Greece. What a lovely island! And the farmhouse I stayed at was hosted by the kindest people, Alexia and Lefteris who have 6-year-old boy named Hermes. Hermes reminds me of Gerald Durrell - a born naturalist. He showed me all kinds of geckos and other interesting creatures that he gently caught and released. While I was there I intended to do watercolors but I quickly tired of doing mediocre landscapes and started drawing crazy creatures. The result is the video story above. Below are pictures of the farmhouse and my trip.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
