As I sit on this beach, at the shore of a sea which has taken us Portuguese, to discover distant lands, I can’t help thinking about lost friends and where I’m heading. What does the future hold, on which shores will I be sitting next.

This sea has magical properties, its salt cures everything, even your soul. The iodine in the algae makes you feel restored and provides a flow of positive feelings throughout your body.

Sometimes you feel like letting yourself be gently taken by the waves, curious where that will lead you. A sensation of freedom and discovery.

I could never do that but for me the sea provides a similar quest. It frees my thoughts from all the obstacles and chains that try to limit and tie them down. As if looking for the perfect wave, I look for the ultimate inspiration. The one that will free my mind, make me feel myself again and will allow me to express myself truthfully, without boundaries.
