Photographer's Note

Meandering through the cozy lanes of Thira one day, I came upon a family roasting their Easter lamb on a spit in the back yard. When I stopped to take a picture, the matriarch vigorously waved for me to enter. Out came the retsina wine, a plate of roast lamb, cucumbers and olives landed in my hand while a boombox whined a belly-dancing tune. Grandfather jumped up from the table and kicked his heels skyward as grandma joined him, apron round her waist, spinning like a teenager. Plates flew through the air, crashing into pieces against the wall. Then, everyone got up, snaking around the table in true Zorba fashion until dusk.
