Arriving at Ithaca


כִּי תֵּצֵא בַּדֶּרֶךְ אֶל אִיתָקָה

שְׁאַל כִּי תֶּאֱרַךְ דַּרְכְּךָ מְאֹד

מְלֵאָה בְּהַרְפַּתְקָאוֹת, מְלֵאָה בְּדַעַת


When you set out for Ithaka

ask that your way be long,

Σα βγεις στον πηγαιμό για την Ιθάκη,

να εύχεσαι νάναι μακρύς ο δρόμος,

γεμάτος περιπέτειες, γεμάτος γνώσεις.


The first lines from Ithaka by Constantine P. Cavafy, in Hebrew, English and Greek.

    It was exciting to be part of the journey to Ithaka .
    “Stepping” on the footprint of History and in this case ” Sailing” is making our 3 dimension life (x-y-z) to turn to four dimension where the time is the other 4th axis.
    This was “a sail to the soul” where the past meets the present and with the dreams of future it become a extraordinary experience.
    Nona’s Art was taking a magnificent part of the substructure of the journey and made it to be a special and unique.
