Artemisia is one of the true grits of this
island. She has lived here through wars and famine, the earthquake
of '53 and seen Ithaca struggle and survive through the decades from the
1920's to the present day. She has a sharp witt and is as informed
about the world and it's politics as the next person. Her neighbourhood
of Lahos looks out for her, although she doesn't need too much attention.
She tends her vineyard and continues to do her chores even at the age
of 85 without complaint. Artemisia is still years away from relinquishing
her productive life.
Those who know her, love her and admire her.
