“All my life I’ve lived close to the ocean, immersed myself in its comfort, tossed myself around in its many moods, listened to its rhythm at night, like a lullaby. For a year we lived away from the sea. In that year I felt far from home.
I need the sea because it teaches me. I don’t know if I learn music or awareness, if it’s a single wave or its vast existence”
