A little bit about Greece: weightless Meteora

I think for most people of my age the word 'Meteor' is primarily associated with the name of Linkin park album rather than with the temple complex. But in fact in both cases unusual sound of the word lures consciousness into play with secret mystical meanings.

But as it turned out not only the «floating in the air» churches were gorgeous, but also the road to the stone towers leading through Thessaly valley. What can be better — the even wiggle of the car, the heat of the sun on the hand, the very song in the headphones and cool ribbon of the road getting lost among the faded from the sun plains...

A blissful slumber when the consciousness has almost slipped into oblivion as if under a layer of water which slightly vibrates from a distant melody of favorite song ... this condition is akin to meditation — all possible and impossible ideas have passed by as flashing trees along the roadside and there is only happiness trembling inside like a bird... it slowly spreads along the nerve, creating an almost palpable static electricity between your fingers ...

You love and feel every withered bush and single grass, smooth side of the iron beast and his driver, the rough surface of asphalt and white flashing strip ... you both everywhere and nowhere, merged with all that surrounds you and space away at the same time ... you want to jump out and run with the wind as fast as possible and at the same time lie down not moving and passing light through yourself...

You're like a harp on which the universe plays and every touch of the strings spikes electricity ... and the soft side of the mountains is like a mirage blurred in the blue sky…

And suddenly as if a huge tsunami the stone monuments begin to rise above the plains and only with a closer look you notice that they are topped with red brick roofs. The monastery became a natural extension of the mountain peaks merging into a single unit. And when finally you know that churches are on unapproachable rocks there is only one question — how? How did they do it? And if the mind understands everything at the technical level, on the emotional one it is fully confused.


Have a good day, MarrySav!)
