You might have noticed that our little country has been going through a rough time. Some call it an economic crisis. Some an economic attack, blackmail, and robbery.
We have spent the last few weeks worried about our friends, our families, and the people of Cyprus.
We have gone out in the streets and photographed demonstrations, talked to people, and stayed in for too many hours glued on our computers following the news. We made jokes, we laughed, we swore, we got anxiety attacks. We took breaks. We did work.
Through everything we got orders for books. Some have already arrived at their destinations. Some are on their way.
And one was sent to a lovely person who wrote to let us know that in addition to buying our book for the photography and the subject matter, they bought it because they “wanted to give some small support to business in Cyprus by buying something.”
We just had to share this with you. Whether you are in Cyprus, or not. Actually, especially if you’re in Cyprus, you need to know this.
Cyprus might be small, but the world is big, with wonderful supportive people. Evil politicians and bankers are not the world. We stand together here, in our tiny country and support each other, and others will support us too.
We are extremely grateful for our friends. And we don’t want to get too sappy, but we believe that a better world is possible.
(Okay, we don’t care, go ahead and call us sappy. We are creative types. We’ve been called worse.)
