Album Notes
This album was inspired by the poetry of Eleni (Neni) Karapiperi, February 18,1950 - November 16, 2010.

Neni’s vision of life around her was acutely developed perhaps more so being born with a rare eye disorder. She began writing poetry in 1966 and adeptly captured the hardships, desires and triumphs of ordinary folk living in Athens.

Neni and Notis met in 1995 and married on March 1 1996. Around 2000, life in Athens was in decline; their beloved city was decaying around them and the Greek economy was rapidly deteriorating. They decided it was time to leave behind family and friends and forge a new life together in California.

In 2008 Notis reunited with fellow musician and long-time colleague Kathy Sherman and the three formed the band Greek Harmony. In February of 2010 Neni was diagnosed with lung cancer. Although she fought hard, the disease eventually caught up with her. Rest in peace, Neni – this album is dedicated to your memory.
