One by one the waves broke
I was alone with the sand and the foam
Of the sea that sang just for me.
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
I have such a strong connection with the Sea.
Maybe in another life I could have been a Nereid or some sort of sea creature. In fact, all the elements connected to the sea exert a fascination over me, somewhat magnetizing and make me feel like I belong near them…I try to surround myself by sea elements as they naturally bring me inner peace and tranquility.
I don’t know if I told you this before but I moved relatively recently to an apartment and I still have a great deal of decorating to do, including the decoration of the living room which is currently a blank slate.
I’m definitely using these images as sources of inspiration!
Now that I come to think of it, I could sum up my dreams for the future this way: a house full of children, love and sea decor. :)
In times like this I feel so lucky I was born and raised in this seaside corner of the planet (universe?).
Oh, and the poem above is from my favourite female poetess of all times. In my teen years I would stay up late reading her poetry and I could never get enough of it. She was also such a strong character, epigrammatic, her words were sharp: a truly inspirational female. If you’re into poetry you should definitely check her out!
