A View from Sounion

Take the chill off winter and imagine yourself in the sailboat...

This is the promontory at Cape Sounion, the very spot where Aegeus, fretfully waiting for the return of his son Theseus, flung himself into the sea when he caught sight of the forgetful black sails. I took this photograph on our trip to Greece in July 2004.

DD: Indeed it reminds me of all of us after a hard day when the favorite Latin student doesn't remember the second person, plural, active, indicitive of Amo. We cast ourselves off into the sea, only hearing, as we plummet downward, the words, "April Fool!"
