To mother Mykonos I owe a lot. I have always tried to repay her love. Mykonos and I, I and Mykonos, have advanced firmly, hand to hand toward creation... our own creation.

I am the one who remains a child on the island, unchanged by a successful career and many international relationships.

For one thing, I want you to know the truth about Mykonos and I exactly as it is. Because our sacred truth lies nowhere but in the seeds of nature... A windmill. A monastery. The Aegean breeze. The thirsty rocks. The angry waves. The shining white houses springing up from asymmetry.

That's Mykonos, that's me! 

We were made to enjoy life together and share all our sunshines and storms.
