About the Book
Ios, the wild flower, feels timeless because her nature defines, inspires because she’s beautiful, torments when her weather is extreme, and starves when compared to places of lush vegetation and the choices available elsewhere. Ios is about feeling alive by imagining her ancient past, though with difficulty since she reveals her history on a seemingly what you see basis and regarding monuments that isn’t much. However, take a walk over rough grounds in remote parts and note the terracotta fragments on tops of mountains and in deep ravines. History tells of arrivals by various peoples, but where are the remains of their homes away from the port and village? And the battles which took place? The island is a never ending discovery stimulating the desire to blend with nature, memorize colours, sounds and textures along the way.
