On the search for Madonna's video shot on Batuka at Ericeira's coastline we never made it to the Capela de São João.
My friend Michael and I hadn't seen us for years. Together with my son Zion, we ended up on a beach close by talking about life, what and who evokes change and - well, how to free yourself.
On this day under the sun, the sea felt powerful, shined light blue and the waves splashed some freshness on our skin. It was windy though, and soon we looked for shelter in this simple restaurant on top of the cliff.
A classic after the beach time: We ordered a fresh beer, cooled white wine, a limo, veggie toast and nourished our souls with this stunning view over the Atlantic. It always makes me feel at home.
Zion came up with "spin the bottle". He was totally in charge of the rules. And we had to answer questions asking each other. It turned out to be an exciting game.
Discussing Karl Marx's theory that the material world defines culture, education, and human growth, the question to me was, what my favorite "thing" is.
I had to think.
Getting a hint like, it could be chocolate, I finally got my answer.
When I practice Ashtanga Yoga intensively and come off my mat after about two hours the best thing to do then's to drink water.
Fresh, natural, smooth water.
This natural power and I feel like one.
The clarity of the taste's subtle.
The sensation of clearing's sensational.
Life's fragile. Life's marvelous. And I believe life happens in the details.
All details combined designs you.
Details express in taking action, not just pondering on big words, like, love, appreciation, courage, forgiveness, etc.
How does it look like in your daily life?
What's your favorite material good?
How do you express love?
Which situations call your courage?
Let's play "spin the bottle" and reply here with your share!
Because, when it's water OR salty caramel dark chocolate, we're already two.
Raise your awareness, look out for your details, and enjoy this day!
Sweet love and as always, deep appreciation for you to be here
reading and replying to my email. It means so much to me.
Your Stef ❤️
