Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.

Free as a fish

Linger

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.

Feel the blue

I will do water – beautiful, blue water.

Flowers by the sea

The sun is lying on the ground
Exhausted
The sky decided to take a ride
Alone
The sea turned into orange
Capricous
The birds are running
Fast and furious
The lions show their brand new wings
Proud
Only the flowers are still the same
Are you sure?
Take a closer look!
They have a new wardrobe.

Breathe

My hair is blowing in the wind
The fresh air smoothes my face
Every wave opens a window of opportunities
Blissful peaceful mind
The sunset is not a farewell
But the hope that the best is yet to come.
