Polluted post

Posted in Ελλάδα, Κοινωνία στις 10:30 πμ από perissos

I am coming back from the hospital, went to see my uncle. Truth is I did not see that because he was asleep. Again. I like to think that this fact alone is a good sign: you can sleep therefore you have no worries or pain to keep you up. Or, one might say, your body is so weakened that you have no other option. Dunno…
I left him a note

Anyways, this was not the reason to pull the iSihtir out of my pocket to write a post. The reason is the location of the hospital itself. It is right next to a peripheral artery of athens. Endless traffic, every day. I got out of the hospital and I could actually feel the sh!t entering my lungs. What an appaling feeling!
There are some shops on that street. I thought of their owners. The street is giving them life with its constant flow of people and at the same time it’s taking it back.
I remember some 10y ago I used to go to a barber, very distant cousin of my mother. His barber shop was at a central junction, in the NW of athens, I was walking ~5km to get there. He was calling me his nephew for no obvious reason 🙂
Anyways. His lungs were so f@cked up from just being at that point daily, that they resembled a smoker’s, as he was telling me. It was enough for a clent to forget to close the door, to cause a volcanic eruption of anger from the barber. He was just craving to be retired in 1-2y and go back to his native island, a paradise compared to that.
He never saw that day…
