About a year ago I left town to travel to where the glam crowds swarm in the summer. It was work alright but as it happens when you're serious about going all business I happened upon the most fun work circumstances one ever can. Just the villa we had rented would suffice, the editorial setups, the tons of florals and glorious views of the azure, the mills, the pebbled streets, the art of it all.
They say all greatness comes in threes, and there were more triads than I could count. One of them wore a backpack on the shoulders, offered to carry my heavy black coat around all day, shared my sincere affection for pistachio ice-cream, plus endless talks about literally everything, frozen coffee cups, gyros pies, octopus and ouzakia on the beach till we got a little lightheaded, was kind to strangers, had two cucumbers a day, went yoga flying at dawn and joined me to dance in a circle of 250 strangers at the local fair.
Sometimes, Life is kind to us that way.
