Greetings from the Atlantic!



All of these pictures were taken by me in a fishermen's town called PENICHE, in the western Atlantic area around ninety quilometers north of Lisbon.

The Atlantic is deeply intertwined with our Soul of navigators and adventurers.
It also plays the role of Lullaby singer when we feel drained or in need of soothing...

Its sheer energy is a wonderful incentive to LIVE.

And there are many inspiring moments to treasure forever...

With best greetings to all, from sunny Portugal and the Peniche Atlantic Ocean!

Querida Teresa,

Temos todo o gosto e carinho em alimentar esta relação, como diz - além de percebermos muito bem essas "pausas" por excesso de trabalho, uma vez que nós próprios as temos com frequência. Melhores dias (mais criativos) virão!

Um abraço,

Hi Isabel. Hooray! I have found your site. How lovely your coast is. Very much like our Atlantic coast of the Land's End, Cornwall. I imagine it is much warmer than here though we have had a most beautiful spring. I love your words too and know where they come from:) On Aqu.P. we spoke about Moon gardening but there was'nt enough interest to continue there - I think the hysteria about flu pandemics robbed us all of common sense for a few days! I am still very uneducated on I.T but am currently setting up a blog where I can bore myself to death with out using up Robert's space. (a good thing I think!) Anyway, if you are interested, a good site is I think it is a really good way to put our faith in the reality of what we spend so much time thinking about. Now may I share this with you?
" The brilliance of the seas has flashed forth.
The dawn of blessing has arisen.
What IS this ancient wisdom?
The source of these living waters is in your head
And in your eyes."

Hello dear Morvah! What a nice surprise!!!

Your quote of RUMI is excellent and very inspiring!
I promise to go visit your blog as soon as you establish it!!!



It certainly is a good mental discipline to garden - as well as a lot of joy!

Hello dear,
I have missed you too. Very busy here also. Scorpio Voids sound most unpleasant! Hope you are sleeping better now. It has got cooler here so it is easier to sleep. On the dawn of the solstice we went to a stone circle nearby for the sunrise. It was truly magical and wonderful to meditate in the golden light of dawn.
Don't work too hard!
Shanti, Morvah

Dear Morvah!

What a lovely surprise!

I keep going to your profile to see if you started your blog yet, but no news...

Do you need any hints as to how to post in your blog? Or is it maybe just lack of time?

Thanks for dropping by! I do need to make a new post here too. If you want, you can browse through the other blogs me and my Husband have in Portuguese - you can get there by going to my profile and cliking on each one of the links. Even if you will not understand the language, you will at least see the pictures, most of them from Lisbon or other places in Portugal.

Thanks for dropping by!!!

Thank you dear Isabel,
I am afraid there is no help for me! I only got my first, very old computer last year and only online for 9 months and already my hard disk is full with no backup programme so I think it is best to wait until I have a new computer before starting to post my blog. It is rather frustrating but at least I will have plenty of material. Thank you for your kind invitation to look at your other blogs. They are very beautiful - how clever you are! I was not able to understand your words but the language of love is easy to understand. At the moment I am beginning to learn the language of mermaids and look forward very much to sharing with you.So I must do my best to manifest some computer money from the Vast Bank of the Universe ( the only one which has any money!).
Shanti, Morvah

Imagens muito lindas. Não vejo a hora de ir a Portugal. Eu amo Portugal, mas o trabalho corrido ainda não me deixou ir. Aí, quando vejo essas imagens fico doidinha.

Hi Isabel, thought I would drop by and see what you have been doing up until now. I have been very very busy last few months (grand irrationality). Looking forward to some more lovely pictures of Lisbon and Portugal...

Take care

Dear Aditya,

Hey! I have ALSO been terribly busy and tired...

Today I went to Aquarius Papers and ended up doing a few comments there, including one that finnished up as a post here, dedicated to Ted Kennedy.

Hoe are you doing?

Hi Isabel, I have been busy with my new job and sad trying to live far from my two children.

Now I am trying to compromise and banish my ego totally so I can be with my wife and children.

September seems to be new beginning for good people. Hopefully I am one of them.

Best wishes to you. I will visit more regularly and leave comments.
