Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Look up, look down

Walking along the pavement on a Sunday morning I came across this which for reasons unknown moved me greatly. To start with I wasn't sure what I had seen, so I bent down to get a better look and there firmly embedded in the pavement was a "fossil" flower. Yes, I know, I have been watching too much Attenborough, but isn't this just delightful. It reminded me of the inlay work at the Taj Mahal and let me show you what I mean. You can see the light through it, the delicate fronds inside the flower which now lies on the a slab of concrete. Made my day.
