30 Nov   pithoi made in the local villages last 2 centuries were rolled down the earth paths trodden by donkeys, to the boats that stopped at a wooden jetty on the beach.

Huge pots rolling past our olive grove.

old man with donkey, tear in trousers, stopped often on the track 10 years ago, exchange smiles, the potter in village a mile away, no donkey or potter now.

sea worn shards found on the beach, fallen off boat or broken and thrown into sea.
