Evangelia Papaelia (Eve) I am a 58 year old woman who lives and works in the Greek island of Syros. I live at my seaside home in the south of the island where I write, paint and work in my garden.
After a successful business career I semi-retired pursuing my interests in writing and painting. I am also a keen walker having walked all around the island and having participated in the local road races.
The Greek economic crisis has interrupted my previous career so I decided to shift from business to the health area, a dream I had for almost 40 years. I finished the local nursing school and I now work for my practice requirement 6 hours a day in the Regional Hospital Pathology department.
My goal is to finish the required hours of practice in the coming February and try to work in aged peoples’ homes as a caregiver for as many years as I can. In the mean time I pursue mainly my writing creating this blog with two goals in mind. To show people like myself that:
It is never too late to pursue your dreams. Live with passion. Life is too short to live someone else’s dream.
I also would like to turn my blog into a bilingual English and Greek blog for all those people out there who want to share my worldview.
