The Sea


The full moon is silhouetted against the sea, smothering the waves with silver reflections. Sitting on a dune, we watch the continuous ebb and flow, each with our own thoughts. For me the sea has always been a confidant, a friend absorbing all its told and never revealing those secrets; always giving the best advice – its meaningful noises can be interpreted anyway you choose. For Alberto, it is a new, strangely perturbing sight, and the intensity with which his eyes follow every wave building, swelling, then dying on the beach, reflects his amazement… The fresh wind fills the senses with the power and mood of the sea; everything is transformed by its touch…
