Cinnamon cookies

ελληνικα

Lately we are becoming full of sweet little foxes (in Greek this metaphor is used for sweet, smart, lovely people). They are coming from everywhere, they look like little aliens at first, they cannot even hold their head up straight, they look you slowly straight in the eyes scanning your face and reactions (who knows what they think). And you look at them thinking how complicated your life has become when things are always only simple. As what we all truly need is a heart, full of cinnamon.
