“What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote.” There might be times when people think that travelling ain’t for them. It requires a lot of organization with a pinch of spontaneity (or two pinches or as you like it), it hides its attraction in a lot of unexpected turns and sometimes even leads to unknown whereabouts but, finally, it moves you deeply and you fall in love with it irrevocably. There might be times when people fail to find will and determination to do something new or take a new step into the unknown. Nonetheless, you always should keep in mind that tomorrow is a new day. If you are ever at the crossroads, dare to do more than just sleeping on it, go to the desert(s), listen to its silence, take a deep breath and everything will appear to you as it is. There might be times when you doubt yourself, but there are answers to all your questions – just don’t be too timid to ask for them.”
Where is the beginning of this
Where is the end
Why are you here
What is your life about anyway.
Try to look deep inside and ask yourself
Who are you?
What is it you are seeking for?
“The Sun Within” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film In Portugal Featuring Poet Fernando Pessoa Directed By Mathieu Le Lay.
Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Mathieu Le Lay
Music by: Solar Fields (“Into the Sun”)
Narrated by: Leonor de Vilhena Roque Dantas de Matos
“Horizonte” by Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935)
Oh ocean preceding us, your fears
Had coral and beaches and forests to them.
Were the night and fog unveiled,
The past’s storms and mystery,
The Afar would blossom, and the starlit South
Shine resplendent on the ship of initiation.
Austere line of the distant coast
Upon the ship’s approach, the slope of the land rises
In trees with nothing
Far about them;
Closer by, the earth opens up in sounds and colours
And upon landing there are birds and flowers
Where from afar there was only an abstract line.
The dream is to see the invisibile forms
Of imprecise distances, and, with sensitive
Movements of hope and will,
To seek out in the cold line of the horizon
The tree, the beach, the flower, the bird, the fountain
The much-deserved caresses of Truth.

“I am Nick, a freelance photographer.
In the past 10 years I‘ve been travelling and photographing around the world.
What I realized, though, was that I had gradually stopped seeking new destinations. I found a place that offered me a sense of stability and warmth where my inspiration and creativity amplified. Nature in all its’ forms was still surrounding me: Snowy landscapes, deep canyons, lakes and rivers, vast forests and of course the sea.
In the end, I think I found my destination, a place that has nurtured me, and has always been so close to me. That makes me feel home!

“There are special places when you arrive there, you feel like you’re at home. I was in one. A small town in Spain, Blanes. Quiet and cozy in the off-season when there’re no packs of tourists on a big buses. This is more personal video. There is no many complicated transitions and shots, but rather attempt to convey the feeling of coziness of this place.”
“Time In Eternity” by Tom Merrill
When you were as an angel in my arms,
Had laid your bare head just below my chin,
Your length pressed up to mine, entrusting charms
My whole youth’s starward longing could not win;
With still the murmur of your love in me,
Miracle-tones of all my lifelong hope,
I wished that there might start eternity
And seal forever that sweet envelope;
And as it did, my thoughts are now for you
As every star is blotted by the sun,
And so the sun itself
Has perished too,
And with it, every dream of mine

Excerpt from “The Waves” by Boris Pasternak
We were in Georgia. You can get this land
If hell is multiplied by paradise,
Bare indigence by tenderness, and if
A hothouse serves as pedestal for ice.
And then you’ll know what subtle doses of
Success and labor, duty, mountain air
Make the right mixture with the earth and sky
For man to be the way we found him there.

So, with some of the images that we recorded, I made this little tribute to Mr. Charles Bukowski and his poem ‘The Laughing Heart’. And, of course, to my colleague Izhan, who’s being a fellow companion these last couple of years. For more adventures like this!”

“Sonnet 130” by William Shakespeare
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
