Present situation about the book

As of early December our manuscript (and photos) is being reviewed by a major publishing company.

We do not know if they decide to publish the book.

What we do know is that it will not happen this year. We know that some of you had hoped it would be available for you to give to family and friends as a Christmas present. We are truly sorry that this will not happend.

Wind power

This is image #49 (out of 100) – and corresponding text by John Slade – of our book on refugees and volunteers on the Greek Island of Chios.

You made preorder the book at this link…

The income goes directly to the Norwegian NGO Drop in Ocean for their work in Greece.


The day is coming when the wind and the sun—not shiploads of oil—will power the homes of Chios.

The wind that filled the sails of Odysseus, the wind that filled the sails of these old mills, will soon spin the blades of modern offshore wind turbines.

The sun that warmed the face of Penelope while she watched for her husband to return, will soon bring its spark to the island.

As oil diminishes, so shall diminish a major cause of war . . . and of refugees.

With the wind, with the sun . . . comes peace.
