"It was as if the fresh air, its salty taste and the thundering waves made me instantly happy. The wind was rejuvenating and the hike on firm sand along the coast was a pure pleasure for me. I opened up like a blossom towards the sun, my senses so sharpened to take in every sound and even the smallest source of inspiration for my art."
