My second day, back on the island of El hierro. It still feels weird. The contrast with living on the continent is huge. The feeling of the island is so different. Nature feels so much stronger. It is clear right away that most things are beyond your control. In the beginning it always makes me want to run away, get back to normal.
After some time it is fantastic, the purity of the air is fantastic, the clearness of the water and the perfect swimming temperature is fantastic, the perfect silence is fantastic, releasing so much pressure from my brain. So much more easy to be fully functioning here or to get fully crazy, that too. Everything is enlarged and it al becomes so very visible in the bright light.
I immediately went back to painting as it always helps me to find some inner stability. I am looking for new forms and patterns, new directions, looking for a freedom to express more.
