…give yer soul a wee treat and watch this…

…the clip above has been doing the rounds again on Facebook, and I have to ‘fess up, it hits me right in the ‘feels’… there’s sum’thing uplifting about the whole ‘Zorba music’ thing… and I’m aware that the video was made a coupla years ago… but given the turbulence and relative hardship that many of the Greek populace has undergone in recent times, I find it a singularly positive watch… most of the man-in-the-street Greeks are not responsible for the economic mismanagement and political sleight-of-hand that has brought such despair to families all over that country… like many of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land, I visited Greece many years ago, I danced Zorba’s dance and indulged the ouzo, and had a terrific time with the locals… I wish them well… enjoy the thing once more, and let yer spirit and soul soar as mine has done watching it…

    • ..indeed, that man, David… I’m a former banker, but hopefully never behaved in the way the charlatans in charge have done for the last ten years… all the corporate biggies bailed out for billions, and the common populace in places like Greece are made to pay ultimately for the sins of the people supposedly running the world’s finances…shameful !


  2. What an uplifting video, thanks for sharing Seumas!


  3. Seumas, that positively made my day. It was truly heartwarming. The people are often not responsible for what a certain group does. I hope the Greek people come out of this with spirits totally intact. 🙂

    I took Seumas’ advice and stopped to watch the video – it made me grin and left me with a lump in my throat at the thought of what those folks are going through right now. If you haven’t yet seen it, take a look – it’s worth it… Oppa!
