The Gorgeous Waters of Malta and Gozo

“The ocean was the best place, of course.
That was what she loved most.
It was a feeling of freedom like no other,
and yet a feeling of communion with all the other places and creatures the water touched.”
Ann Brashares

It is a gorgeous winter day – a day so warm I’m clad in sundress and sandals and loving every second of it.

Today is a bustling day of all sorts of projects because tomorrow I head for the Abbey Medieval Festival with my dear folks. I get to give a talk on medieval medicine and herbs, and after being nervous as all get out, now I’m excited. I’ve been brewing potions and mixing salves and ointments and my kitchen smells of beeswax and licorice root with a tang of vinegar.

So as I pack and brew I will leave you with some images of a few of my favorite spots in Gozo and Malta – on the water, of course.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend! xo

“It is life, I think, to watch the water.
A man can learn so many things.”
Nicholas Sparks

“When you sit in silence long enough,
you learn that silence has a motion.
It glides over you without shape or form,
exactly like water.
Its color is silver.
And silence has a sound you hear only after hours of wading inside it.
The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up,
like the words of glass speaking. ”
Anne Spollen

“They both listened silently to the water,
which to them was not just water,
but the voice of life,
the voice of Being,
the voice of perpetual Becoming.”
Hermann Hesse

“The places where water comes together with other water.
Those places stand out in my mind like holy places.”
Raymond Carver

“Where the waters do agree, it is quite wonderful the relief they give.”
Jane Austen
