Photographer's Note

Somehow, in a strange way, this one is a "continuation" of my two previous posts - notes ( Greece, the cradle of Democracy? and Athens is burning) and "closing the "subject".

On the tomb of Greece's greatest writter, Nikos Kazantzakis in Iraklios, Crete, it is written:
"I hope nothing
I fear nothing
I am free"

Kazantzakis was strongly influenced by Budhism at some period of his life, and it seems that while seing the end aproaching he achieved some kind of "Nirvana".

Unfortunately, not everybody is a budhist. Most of us, need to hope for something, need to make dreams for a better future. The lack of hope might be "reasonable" or inevitable for an elder man, like the one in photo, sitting on the bench on the lakeside road of Ioannina. The lack of hope, might mean "freedom", but this kind of freedom is unbearable for the young men and women of the world.

The young ones without hope, the desperate ones, have nothing to lose. Their reaction to a depressive society, to a violent state, to those who steal their hopes and dreams will be unpredictable.

Beware of the hopeless! For some are the major threat! For some others, the hopeless are the only hope left!
