“Ya know, I used to live like Robinson Crusoe; I mean, shipwrecked among 8 million people. And then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were”.

C. C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) to Fran (Shirley MacLaine), from The Apartment (Billy Wilder, 1960)

[Sofia Geneiataki is a surprisingly modest person, considering how versatile she is. An Athens resident but a Cretan at heart, she has studied Spanish literature, the law, and history of art. Among other things. She also wears awesome coats and has the weird habit of eating lots of fruits for breakfast. This strange picture from her summer holidays – more of a relief on the sand rather than a footprint – reminded me of C. C. Baxter and his unforgettable line of aching loneliness]
