the unbearable heat


Οι μέρες περνάνε, όλα αρχίζουν να θυμίζουν καλοκαίρι, η άνοιξη παίρνει μαζί της όλα όσα αγαπάω. Και αφήνει πίσω μόνο ζέστη, πολύ ζέστη, ανυπόφορη ζέστη, αποπνικτική ζέστη. Θες να σκίσεις το δέρμα σου και πάλι αμφιβάλλω αν θα έβρισκες σωτηρία από τον ανυπόφορο λίβα.

Ας ήταν έτσι σήμερα. Ας ήταν έτσι κάθε μέρα.

The days go by and everything begins to resemble the summer. The spring leaves us and she takes with her everything that I love. And  what stays behind is heated, too much heat, scorching heat, searing heat. You want to rip your skin and you doubt that this will let you find some salvation.
I wish the day would like this. I wish every day from now on would like this.

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
