A View from the Road

Teachers Do Inspire

If you have been to Athens, Greece in the last couple of decades, this is not the View From The Road, which you see, rather the Acropolis, including the Parthenon and Athena’s Temple, are surrounded by scaffolding, but this was what I saw in 1980.

I remember Miss Lawrence, in my senior year of high school, showing us slides of her trip to Greece, seeing a picture of her standing in front of the Parthenon, and thinking, one day that will be me.

When I went to my ten year high school reunion, I reconnected with an old friend, Nora, who soon thereafter, as I sat in her house, showed me a picture of herself, standing in front of the Parthenon; also inspired by Miss Lawrence.

I know I took a picture of myself, in front of the Parthenon, but no longer seem to have it; nonetheless, this is not too shabby a View, even if the quality of the photo is not what I wish.

This is a post card from Found Image Press, though I did not see the Parthenon in black and white, it was during winter, sans tourist as well as those pesky signs of improvement.

Glenda in front of the Parthenon — I know there is a picture of me standing in this exact location.

Another shot from a post card, writing on back is literally in Greek, thus I cannot give proper credit — but great view.

From my first trip to Europe, specifically Greece, a couple of pages from my scrapbook, which yes would send today’s scrapbook experts into a panic, but back in the day, we had no idea about acid free paper or the harm adhesives would do —

Do you see what I see, beside the admission ticket?
