Salt Your Soul…

Sometimes you just need to cut the ties to the land and set sail. The air becomes stuffy at the office, the “have-to-do” list grows a mile long at home. You become consumed by all things big and small, and feel the need to “just go”.

To go to a world where the currents, wind and tide table tell you where and when you can go. To a world where the feeling of “being in control” is barely an illusion.



Once you leave that dock, you realize you can not really over power, manipulate the Mother Earth but have to be alert, listen to what she is saying and stay on her good side so that she will let you live.

You feel the wind and splash in your face and you realize, you just need to salt your soul to take the bitterness out of it.

    Ahhh, İlke, and are we talking about sailing here or are we on a little allegorical journey? Our life is the latter at the moment and this blog post suits perfectly! Suspect you’re with us with that one, though. ;) xxx

    Julia, yes I am with you :) Lately, everything has started to feel a bit too much, so need mental escapes as well :)
