my favorite thing on earth is getting calls from my family in greece when it is obviously late at night there and they have obviously been happily drinking.

i get nuggest of awesome information like my 64-year-old mother rode on the back of my uncle's motorcylce and that my cousin is setting up Oliver's one-year birthday and baptism on our favorite island.

but mostly that my mother rode on a motorcycle.

i love that they're having a blast and sounded so happy, laughing like crazy in the background.
this kind of pure happiness really eludes me here.
i wish i could pack and go there right now.

this very very instant.
