And now for a different kind of reality


Paul Richardson's travelogue Not Part of the Package tells how:
The world has always needed pockets of a different kind of reality. A place where there is relative peace and relative freedom. A place that's available for freedom of the spirit.
One of the drivers of the 1967 'Summer of Love' was a search for places - both geographic and experiential - where the spirit was truly free. Among the places where that freedom can still be found is the south coast of Crete, which is where my photo was taken. Crete stands at a cultural crossroads and the island's new modal music reflects that trans-cultural position. In the TED talk below long-term Cretan resident Ross Daly explains how modal music is a musical crossroads.
