Her personal literary efforts constitute a whole parallel universe for her, where she experiments, transforms and transmutes whatever makes her feel provoked. She always works in the energetic sphere of her eternal beloved, who accompanies her from life to life, from plane to plane, from step to step, from one path to another.

“To begin with an a,
To finish with it,
With no circle having being made
But a whirlwind.”

“My love, I will never let anyone mistreat you, bring you down, harm you or restrict your freedom, for it was in the freedom of pure nature that I fell for your naked beauty and innocence. Our love withstands all hardships; it supports us and helps us reveal our true self. It runs through our veins and keeps us warm and strong. We cannot mistake it for something else. In order to find each other,...

Ο Εργάτης της 11ης Ώρας συζητά με τον Πάνο Τσερόλα για τη λογοτεχνία, τη δημιουργία των ηρωίδων του, την πολιτική, το μεταφυσικό, τη συνύπαρξη της οπισθοδρόμησης με την πρόοδο, παραδεχόμενος με απλότητα και ειλικρίνεια τα δικά του όρια, ως συγγραφέα και αναγνώστη.

“One of the most important things in life is the magic that lies beneath the surface, the golden stardust that resides in all things. Learn to see it where the others see just ash, learn to feel it where the others feel the cold, learn to make it with your words and deeds, where the others scream or abstain from any action.
