 Nikos Kazantzakis

(1883-1957)

Today is the birthday of a very famous Cretan author and Philosopher, Nikos Kazantzakis!

Most people know Kazantzakis best for his book, Zorba the Greek. I love this work because it is basically about the mentors we encounter in life, and about maintaining a positive outlook for ourselves and others, regardless of our personal circumstances. I recommend you explore the rest of his work if you have the opportunity. He had a great gift for showing us the beauty embedded in every crux of our life paths, the reasons for embracing the great moments, the pragmatic sense of letting things go. His poet’s heart loved so deeply and inspired so many….

To celebrate the occasion, we ask you to take a moment to look at Kazantzakis’ biography, and that you stand tall, let go, and dance one round in his honor, compliments of Mikis Theodorakis.

Ela!
