Crete InSpiration

One good thing this month, we managed a few days holiday in Crete, before life went pear shaped. Here’s a tiny bit of Sunday Inspiration Crete style, taken in the Chania district.

Simple little church.

Now this one is called St John and to the right of this is a church in a cave

Probably on  a truly ancient Cretan sacred site, inside

I’ll be honest I don’t get much from the inside of a Greek orthodox church

a bit too ornate for me. I wonder do we only feel the sacred within a cultural context we associate with spirituality?

And one final image. We went closer to the church but a wedding party was in full progress and we didn’t like to intrude.

Back to Yorkshire, England next time
