PARADISE FOUND

Yesterday, I picked up some groceries in a Mykonos supermarket where they not only had a DJ, but a DJ playing a fab gospel house tune by Bobby D’Ambrosio. People were actually grooving as they shopped. At our next stop, my greek friend Veronica’s cellphone rang and her ringtone was some funky 60s song. She said “I don’t want to answer it because I love this song so much” and began to bop around. I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears but you have to give into that sort of charming madness. It didn’t seem to matter that the call she missed was the fire department urging her to come home and rescue her few remaining possessions. This is a carefree place you celebrate a damn ringtone and a few weeks here are exactly what I needed this summer. Falling in love with Mykonos…
