Βutwhatareyoureally? Otherpeople'sdiminutives? Other people's gazes? Or their conclusions about you?You yourself sometimes view yourself as something a little better than what you are.Or at times, much worse.What are you really?Perhaps a leaky boat in an old harbour, with MAIROULA written on the side in faded letters, having your picture taken by all the tourists who to show that theyve passed through here too?
