the Poet, writer and painter
It's easy to overlook Yiorgos Douglas (a
distant descendant of a Scottish pirate who sailed to Lefkada, fell in
love with a girl and then settled on Ithaca) if you see him in the street.
This Lahos local is so unassuming and retiring that it's hard to guess
that he is a published poet and writer and a sought after lyricist.
His most recent work, Monaxia (Loneliness) recorded by the Greek singer
He's a deep thinker and philosopher on 'ordinary
life that's stretched to the tear' and writes in various shades of black
about love, death and future social anarchy.
He has a powerful and eccentric manner about him that is hard to ignore when his thoughts drill into your psyche and make you wish you were as articulate as he about despair and loneliness, the superficiality of the world at large and the desperation of the lost souls.
For work Yiorgos paints houses.
