My happy place is when I am close to a body of water. Growing up spending summers on the Portuguese coast of the Atlantic and now living 5 minutes from Lake Ontario, I am not only aware of the crucial role of water for our survival, but also as a sacred and spiritual source for inspiration. We become humbled and receive great inner peace when facing the immensity of water extending to the horizon. The constant flow and motion of waves reminds us of the impermanent nature of everything. The soothing sound and sight of water brings peace and harmony.
