Hello everyone. Welcome to the purple land.
Ok, i admit it. I am not a big hot tea fan.
I tried with all my heart to enjoy hot tea but it seems impossible for me to like it.
You may think that there is something wrong with me
and oh well, you are right. I am a coffee girl, i live outside the law.
There are some flavours, more to my liking
like forest fruits or the Apivita Organic Herbal Tea Relax.
And i prefer ice tea so maybe i dont live outside the law..
When i was in Glasgow, i tried a glorious black tea
and i brought back home with me a beautiful Twinings,
Earl Grey tea box. If only my suitcase was bigger....
The black / purple pashmina is from my trip to Constantinople.
And finally, after such a long time, i bought Utopia.
My little story behind the book.
The movie Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998) introduced me to it.
Danielle, the protagonist,
holds very close to her, a gift from her father,
a copy of Thomas More's Utopia.
I knew i had to read it.
** For my Greek readers, avoid the particular edition
because it is awful (fortunately i did not paid for it).**
The main theme of the book is amazing, very weird in some parts but
i think, a timeless work of art.
Utopia is a work of fiction and political philosophy
by Thomas More (1478–1535) published in 1516 in Latin.
The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting
a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs.
Ουτοπία : Utopia is derived from
the Greek words ou (οὐ), "not",
and topos (τόπος), "place", with the suffix -iā (-ία)
that is typical of toponyms;
hence Outopía (Οὐτοπία; Latinized as Utopia,
with stress on the second syllable),
L'homme qui rit (2012)
I am sending you positive thoughts for a great week.
