At the Ensphion, with Greek homes dotting the hillside in the background, my friend Evangelos Grammenos contemplates the setting sun.  He is an important poet, writer, radio commentator, and spiritual teacher in Europe.  He is author of Krishnamurti and the Fourth Way.

 

 

 

 

From the Ensphion, the land plunges into the sea in the distance.
