Cockerels and Goats

I’m an early riser by nature but in summer on Paxos it’s essential if you want to work. The air is cool and very still, the occasional cock crows, the hens and wild turkeys chatter on softly in the olive groves around my house and the cicadas have yet to start that day long thrill of sound which is so much the Mediterranean to us north Europeans who rarely hear so much as an unconvinced cricket.
