                Oh. my. gosh. I just realized how much I have missed Nela's posts and her threads in my time away from here. Seriously. Her contributions themselves can contribute to the preservation of my sanity.

                That's one little beautiful thing that my life hasn't had enough of since the old forum had its little disappearing act.

                  Yikes, Nela!!! You rocked my socks off--and to think, I nearly forgot you told me to come here!!
                  And to everyone so far who's entered their own visions of beauty, superbly done one and all...if I hadn't just found, and posted in, the thread "Do you believe in Life After Death", I would have had to go back and do it....there has to have been a Plan, from the moment these wonderful universes came into being with that big bang!! And some supreme wonder (I call Him God) had to have paved the way for such beauty and such brilliance to exist...you've just reminded me, sweetie, of exactly why I think the way I do!!
                  I wonder if I should stop being such a 'homebody' and wander over to General Chat more often... ;-)
                  LOTS OF LOVE, HEALTHY LIFE FOR 2014!!

                            <center>Haha, well, until the 1920, for centuries,
                            this was the only way, for people to go up there..."THE NET!!!






                            AND THIS...



                            After the 1920, there have been steps carved on the rocks, or built steps to make easier the access there for everyone.

                              LOL, beautiful--but I still won't take groceries there!! My sis-in-law was on a 2 week Greece tour a couple of months ago, so I'll have to ask her if this was on her itinerary....

                                      Metalzord, found out that Meteora was too far from the docking of their ship--but they did see another village built in the same manner, and she had the same thought: How would you manage day-to-day living up on a perch like that?!? Of course, the neighbors wouldn't be much of a bother... ;-)
