I know that this blog is all about happy and inspiring places and spaces but there are some days that it's not that easy to put a smile on the face and pretend that everything is fine. It's not. I'm fine, don't worry, but my country is not. I'm keeping this post simple and short as I don't want to give a political note to My Paradissi but here's what's going on in Greece since yesterday afternoon.
Our unstable and untrustworthy government, without previous notice, shut down all our national TV and radio stations last night. They literally shut the broadcasting signal off and all monitors got a black screen where the national channels used to be*. It is a well known fact that our national TV was having transparency and corruption issues and was in a dear need of some cleaning up and reorganizing. I wonder though, is this sneaky and sudden way the only way to fix things? Living in a country that choses to deal with problems without public discussion, voting or even a notice a few days before so as people know what's going on, makes me wonder in what king of democracy we're living in.
That being said, I'd like to share with you a few shots of Mandy Shadforth's beautiful house. Pretty interiors and cozy home scenes make me feel a tad more positive about life. I don't know why that happens, I prefer to just let it be without overanalyzing.
