📝Ikaria Paradise in Peril SYNOPSIS :
📒From Ikaria To The Stars ✍ Peter Green
📝From Ikaria to the Stars SYNOPSIS : "I hadn't, till I really started digging, gauged the fierce intensity of the need for myth in the human psyche, of any age, or sensed the variety of motives dictating that need," writes Peter Green in the introduction to this wide-ranging collection of essays on classical mythology and the mythic experience. Using the need for myth as the starting point for exploring a number of topics in Greek mythology and history, Green advances new ideas about why the human urge to make myths persists across the millennia and why the borderland between mythology and history can sometimes be hard to map. Green looks at both specific problems in classical mythology and larger theoretical issues. His explorations underscore how mythic expression opens a door into non-rational and quasi-rational modes of thought in which it becomes possible to rewrite painful truths and unacceptable history—which is, Green argues, a dangerous enterprise. His study of the intersections between classical mythology and Greek history ultimately drives home a larger point, "the degree of mythification and deception (of oneself no less than of others) of which the human mind is capable."
📒Ikaria ✍ Diane Kochilas
📝Ikaria SYNOPSIS : The remote and lush island of Ikaria in the northeastern Aegean is home to one of the longest-living populations on the planet, making it a "blue zone." Much of this has been attributed to Ikaria's stress-free lifestyle and Mediterranean diet--daily naps, frequent sex, a little fish and meat, free-flowing wine, mindless exercise like walking and gardening, hyper-local food, strong friendships, and a deep-rooted disregard for the clock. No one knows the Ikarian lifestyle better than Chef Diane Kochilas, who has spent much of her life on the island. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Kochilas's Ikaria is an introduction to the food-as-life philosophy and a culinary journey through luscious recipes, gorgeous photography, and captivating stories from locals. Capturing the true spirit of the island, Kochilas explains the importance of shared food, the health benefits of raw and cooked salads, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, the greens and herbal teas that are used in the kitchen and in the teapot as "medicine," and the nutritional wisdom inherent in the ingredients and recipes that have kept Ikarians healthy for so long. Ikaria is more than a cookbook. It's a portrait of the people who have achieved what so many of us yearn for: a fuller, more meaningful and joyful life, lived simply and nourished on real, delicious, seasonal foods that you can access anywhere.

📒Living And Eating Deliberately Ikaria Aegean Blue Zone ✍ Dianna Lefas
📝LIVING and Eating DELIBERATELY Ikaria Aegean Blue Zone SYNOPSIS : The Story of Ikaria, Greece, in food, stories and philosophy.Ikaria, long overlooked in favor of more idyllic Greek islands, had not kept up with the times by reason of its isolation, so when Dan Buettner discovered in the Aegean island of Ikaria one of the world's "Blue Zones," where people live longer, healthier lives than the rest of us, he started a small fire storm of interest.The Ikarians took it all in with a bit of amusement. They found it humorous that the world should find their casual way of life, as they have lived it for thousands of years, suddenly remarkable. But in today's world, it is remarkable. It is remarkable because not changing to conform to the advancements of corporate farming, fast food and an inundation of sugar and chemicals is, itself, worthy of rediscovery. It is getting back in touch with the way we all once were, when we lived to enjoy life, and not merely lived to work.LIVING (and eating), DELIBERATELY offers, through stories, a glimpse into Ikarian life, its people, their philosophy and, via island recipes, their cuisine. Like some of his fellow Ikarians, my father made a living as a chef, but his connection to food was not merely a working relationship; it was a romantic attachment to the rhythm of life.
