Clean Monday

It's a public holiday today. And I'm busy writing. So I will leave you with a video of what CLEAN MONDAY is all about on the Greek island of Ithaca, where I run the Homeric Writers' Retreat & Workshop every summer ...


  1. Someday, I will be able to afford this retreat. I swear it!

  2. Beautiful video, and happy holiday! I'm keeping tabs on your retreat as I hope to have one up next year here in Mexico.


“I'm using my art to comment on what I see. You don't have to agree with it.” ~John Mellencamp

“Allowing an unimportant mistake to pass without comment is a wonderful social grace” ~Judith S. Marin

“I don't ever try to make a serious social comment.” ~Paul McCartney

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch

“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland

“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
