χαρίκα Πόλι (pleased to meet you)

Hello! γεια σας! 

I’m Lindsay and I am figuring life out one growing season at a time. The Greek Garden is an exploration of things found in the periphery and jumble of modern life;  a heartfelt love for Greece and her people, literature and music, ruins, crumbing houses I find in an off-beat travelogue kind of way; a sense of bookish wonder at the world, a spoonful of tasty food and a shovelful of gardening.

I’m spending more time in Greece now and trying to make it a home.  It is a balance that involves a mix of freelance comms projects over at lbford.com and other innovative ways to live/work. With this trade-off, life is more minimalist, more eco-friendly and as a result (hopefully) less complex.

I also write stuff. Some of my fiction pieces have recently been published in lit mags; Another North, Bandit Fiction, The Cabinet of Heed and Emerge Literary Journal. I also write travel articles for The Culture Trip and other outlets

If you are interested in finding more about my work or want to chat about projects, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

P.S. I get a lot of emails stuffed with Q’s from people wanting to visit the island, or move to Syros and find a job, or buy houses here – yes, I love it and happy to help, but can’t freely advise on things like this and jobs, legal stuff, visas, house rentals, prices etc! But seriously if you want to commission me to help – always open to offers 😉

Welcome to the Greek garden – a place to slow down, tread lightly and find a little kefi…Opa!
