The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

A Moment In Time

There are moments in life when time just seems to stand still. The surrounding world fades away and all that is left is the reality of that silent, solitary moment. It is an instant of intense revelation, when a veil seems to lift and the world lets you glimpse its ancient secrets. It is in these moments of silence and stillness that your senses come fully to life and, deep within your soul, your heart beats to the rhythm of a butterfly’s wings.
