Perfect day

Don’t wait for the perfect moment
Take the moment
And make it perfect.

Summer IX

When the sun is shining, I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.

All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer… one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends, and delightful doing, come as near perfection as anything can come in this world.

Postcards from Saint-Malo

If you never say goodbye to the best things in your life there are things you don’t appreciate at all.

Lighthouse Family

Smell the sea and feel the sky.

Van Morrison

There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.

Victor Hugo

It’s hard to tell the difference between sea and sky, between voyager and sea. Between reality and the workings of the heart.

Golden sand

Take me to the place where the sun never sleeps
Forget everything, except your dreams
Let’s sail away. Shall we?
I want to feel the golden sand under my bare feet

We will live in the summerland
Trust me and hold my hand
You won’t need any luggage
Your belongings are just a mirage

Pick up the shells on your path
Release your soul from the past
A new day is waiting for you
Make a wish, it will come true.

Hard as a rock

Don’t worry about me
Just wait and see
I’m as hard as a rock
Always around the clock
My spirit is sharpen
And my body protected by an iron curtain
Family and friends are my safe haven
Keep dreaming you’re in heaven
I’ll protect the ones I love…always
Life sends me signs in mysterious ways
I embrace the unknown
Because I am as hard as a stone.

Secret beach

Golden sand
Shells in my hand
Deep see
Come with me
Foamy waves
I can almost hear the whales
Cool breeze
No worries, please!
Seagulls flying
Keep trying
Hidden treasures
My life is all that matters
Bare feet
You are so sweet
Golden silence
Freedom is my guidance.

Look closer!

Sometimes we are too occupied
To pay attention to details
Or maybe we are just distracted
Who knows?
The beach is empty
The sea is calm
Peaceful moment
The pool is overflowing
Where? I don’t see it.
Look closer!
