    'Candles' by Constantine Cavafis

    Constantine P. Cavafy (1899) The days of our future stand in front of us like a row of little lit candles -- golden, warm, and lively little candles. The days past remain behind us, a mournful line of extinguished candles; the ones nearest are still smoking, cold candles, melted...

    Well, One-half Greek At Least!

    I am only one-half Greek.  Mom is 100% Greek, and I consider myself Greek before any other nationality, since the other half of me is split tons of ways. I grew up with more Greek traditions than anything.  I love the Greek sense of commitment to family and community...

    Hello everyone. My naked kostas- in half Greek

    but sadly my dad passed away before I could learn any Greek. Really regret not know the language if anyone would be willing to teach me Greek in London... That would be much appreciated. P.s I'm gay so not good if your homophobic or feel uncomfortable about that

    Hi! I'm Mexican but I have Greek ancestry.

    I don't know how much or from what part of Greece though. My family is sadly not at all connected to our Greek roots. We don't speak the language and we know nothing about the culture. However, I still think it's neat that I have Greek ancestry.
