It has been about two months since I last posted and I return with another poetry reading by the amazing Mieke Kenis, based in Belgium – listen to her reading it, she is fantastic! Some of you remember her reading Hair and Ascending.

One of the greatest Greek poets, Constantine Cavafy, wrote one of his most well-known poems under the same title: Ithaca by Constantine Cavafy

I have borrowed the title, as all of us, at some point of our lives, are looking for our own Ithaca like Ulysses (Odysseus) was in Greek mythology.

Many many thanks to Mieke, who has given the poem a new life, a lot of feelings and her own wonderful way of reading it.
