The sea is more than water, in the first place is a memory.

The sea is a cascade of spectacle, going from thin to exuberant to savage

with tentacles of salt and cold.

The sea rocks like a mother and is her own child.

She carries us when we enjoy the sun without any worries, she lets dreams end.

At the high tide we seek reflection and wonder. A horizon.

The sea is a bottomless mirror, we can't get enough of it.

We can only capture her in words and pictures.

We come home by the sea.


The sea is the sea.
