It is not easy learning to live in a different country. I am sharing my experiences and hope someone will find it useful whether living here in Greece or any other country.

What Is May Day To You?

Hard to believe it is May.
seems like only yesterday
and a few years past, we
were young and naive and
not a care in the world.

The years creep upon us,
our children no longer bounce
on our knees, or hold out their
hands for balance.

May for some is the beginning
of summer, the opening and
blooming of colorful and
breath taking flowers.

For others is the planting of
crops and praying for a good
harvest to feed a hungry nation
and family.

Others is cloudy memories of
years long passed of May and
the true meaning of May Day.
What is May Day to you?

Very nice post Carlos !!
For many of us,as you asked...
the 1st of May is a protested day..
not for celebrations..but for memories...bad the most of them...
there where to have a job to work.. was one of our rights for a better living.
Very serious matter on these days..
but not so much importand to many people now..They all care about a funny day and only..
They forget all those they`ve got through..to make all those who sacrifised feel that nothing has gone..!!
