Here in Corfu we are surrounded by water.

What I like so much about water is to see this power of nature. I feel how very small we are, not that I feel small, but I see what a small link we are in this big surrounding. My favourite time at the sea is during stormy weather. Its power can destroy but it can also bring many new things. It fascinates me.

On the other hand I also like the sea when it is calm. It gives a sense of tremendous peace. I love to sit on the shore and watch how the wavelets play with each other – it makes me feel peaceful, it grounds me and brings me back to myself. And when I stand there and look into the distance I have the impression that there are no limits – I feel so much freedom.
