“Διαφορετική μα όχι μόνη

Ανοιξιάτικο πρωινό Κυριακής και οδεύω προς το κέντρο. Στον 3ο όροφο μιας κρεμ πολυκατοικίας των Εξαρχείων, συναντώ το πιο φρέσκο και δυναμικό πρόσωπο του ελληνικού θεάτρου. Ονομάζεται Ηλέκτρα Ελληνικιώτη, είναι γνήσιο παιδί της Αθήνας και μιλάει στο Don’t Panic Athens για τα όνειρα που κάνει όταν μένει ξύπνια στο σκοτάδι.

What a beautiful idea to imagine millions of balloons lifting up your house and travelling you over the lands.

little birds

may my heart always be open to
little birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it’s sunday may i be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more than truly
there’s never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile
