"I remember thinking that he was going to electrocute himself and that I should say something. But then I figured he was the qualified technician and I was new to the island. Everything was new to me, including the fact that electrical wiring was supposed to look like spaghetti; bare un-connected wires protruding from weird places were normal.
I let him throw the switch--"
The search for a simpler, less complicated way of life was the quest of David Fagan. For nearly twenty years he has pursued this ambition, only recently concluding that perhaps simplicity is unobtainable given the amount of evidence he has amassed during almost half his lifetime on Hydra Island, Greece.
After liquidating his life in the rat race, he plunged enthusiastically into life on the "Rock". In spite of unforeseen obstacles, he optimistically persevered with an assortment of "careers", each exposing him to un-anticipated situations and characters.
In this book, he fondly reminisces over just a few of the far from uncomplicated, circumstances he found himself in, bringing his brand of diplomacy, sensitivity, and humour to the telling of tales about the people and place that he now regards as his family and home.
