I hope you have a chance to listen to our guest Danny Schechter. He spent 4 years investigating HOW did the economic crisis happened. He talks about USA and Greece and who is really at fault. This is important information. White collar crime is undermining democracy; we have to act. We were serious and we had fun, too.…See More
I love to read and write, especially about myths and about politics. I'm a big movie fan. I have a fiction novel to finish writing but now I'm concerned with alerting people about the need to slow down pollution and speed up healing the earth.
I also enjoy photography. I'm not familiar with digital cameras but I'm learning!
I live on the island of Crete with my family, although my daughters will both be in Athens soon attending university.
I enjoying reading what the experts have to say at BigThink.com. I have my own idea page at BigThink.com/vickinikolaidis Hope you will visit the site. They have every imaginable subject. Leave a comment so I know you've visited!

I learned about Hint Fiction here at 6S which I enjoy writing very much!

On My Second Trip to Toronto Tripping over the man’s legs that were stretched over the heating grate in the sidewalk etched many things into my mind about my second trip to Toronto. Many things have been tucked away for never forgetting.
I had turned the corner carefully because in front of me I was pushing a stroller holding my toddler. The smoothed out snowy city sidewalk was white with a layer of paper-thin compacted snow. I pulled back… Continue
Friday night, Date night, Year 2009
A couple of minutes before their Friday evening date, she tosses on a clean blouse, brushes her hair back to catch it up in a quick twist and adds a bit of color to her lips.
Nervously she swivels her chair to stare at the two… Continue
Boy, I haven't been around much lately and have missed you all.
I was invited to do an interview on a two hour BlogTalkRadio show called ASNYC Saturday Edition and ended up as a co-anchor/reporter/straightman and Andy is talking about having me sing for both Andy's Saturday Edition and his Sunday World Today Radio program. (singing? yep.)
We are having a lot of fun. I call into New York City from Greece with my Skype account. Then I talk with Andy about current events and look for the… Continue
Vicki, what an interesting way to meet people. I've had a look at your home page and like it as well. We share similar interests and perhaps even mindsets. I'll keep my eye out for your future posts. You recieved an invitation from Mike Solender, you should add him as a friend as well. He also values free thinkers. Take care, nice to meet you.
Hello Vicki, thank you for your kind comments. I have been out of the loop for a while due to work on the house and garden. My husband and I have also had a few health issues. I now see a light at the end of a long dark tunnel. The kitchen is progressing well, albeit slowly. It is finally a pleasure to enter, being full of light and warmth.
I like your perspective - Think about writing for us:
It can be difficult for writers with a different, non mainstream perspective to find a venue that revels in bringing thought-provoking, critical ideas and viewpoints into the open for discussion and debate. On The Wing is that platform and as we re-launch our web presence, we are looking for engaging 1000-5000 word nonfiction essays, opinions, rants and more.
On the Wing is the nonfiction arm of the well read Literary Publication, Full of Crow.
I am inviting you to submit a piece to be considered for publication at OTW.
OTW is looking to both published and never before published writers who may feel disenfranchised from the mainstream media and are looking for a place to air controversial, unusual, contrary or unique pieces that may other-wise never have the chance to be read by a wide audience.
I hope you will bookmark OTW and become a regular reader. I also hope you will consider submitting a piece for review and share the call for new and exciting work with others who may be interested.
Valour of Vicki ~ Through the mists I saw your message. I smiled. I sensated. I shimmied ~ like my sister Kate, absolutely. This *APPARITION* thanks you for giving a ghost*writer the perchance of your glance. ~ Mary?
