A personal note
As I’m writing this, I’m reflecting on how I’ve been feeling these days.
I noticed how most things draining my energy are actually coming from outside sometimes unexpectedly, and on the other hand, I can recognize what is giving me energy instead and that, is usually coming from my own choices.
It seems to be fairly simple: if I choose something that is letting myself and my own vision down, I will feel tired, doubtful, frustrated, or worried. If I choose something that I know supports my vision it will make me feel motivated, focused, confident, and safe.
Ultimately each choice comes down to two questions:
Can I trust I know what I need?
Do I love myself enough to say no to anything else?
And that’s where I remember that also this letter here is what I need, and it feels good.
Hope it will make you feel good too.

~ Drifting ~
Even though we thought It was fun You were still in Just for the spark A moment A story A ray of the sun I drifted away And all turned dark We need no light To see where to go So come around here And get lost Before you go
~ Disappear ~
We’re so close Our eyes The only thing we see When everything else Fades away Only two mirrors remain But mirrors they are not These are gates To the loss of Everything we’ve got
~ Before ~
You know that Sometimes I’ve thought That I wished I’d waited a few more seconds Before Kissing you that night Just to Remember us Before that Moment But I’d been waiting Too long So I couldn’t hold it Any more
~ Discovery ~
And I’m telling you I want to keep seeing you Your soul Your brain Your eyes All that remains I want to see How we play When the universe Comes our way
~ Storyteller ~
Baby I’m living the book Of the story of my life An adventure of dreams, Love and goodbyes And I’ve stayed up late On this starry night To whisper you this tale And kiss you goodnight
~ Riches ~
Ask me anything I’d never lie Ask me any thing I’d never provide If I owned everything I’d give it all away To buy you a chance To know love the same way
Another of my favourite songs and, in this case, artists and human that I love to listen to when creating.
I met Cellomano in Bali, at an event organised on a rooftop, where different artists shared different types of creations, we jammed with music and words.
Later I went home and put his music on repeat and started writing at candlelight.
This was the song
Below you will find the poem that dripped out of my pen without hesitation, straight into the paper of my notebook.
Was a great night.
Now I’m looking forward to sharing some waves with him again when I’ll be back surfing.
