Lost in the Atlantic, there lies the deepest of the secrets. In quiet silences between the green of the "fajãs", those curious plain patches of land sculpted by old lava flows, and the blue sea of the whales, the feelings of the islanders flow in waterfalls, made beautiful by the hydrangeas, born in the heart of each Azorean.
The soul closes the song of the land, which the wind takes in chorus to the ears of whom knows nothing. A Utopia made reality, where the Man mingles with the ground and the sky, in an infinite pride that he takes for where the destiny drives him. An isolated paradise that insists in being lost, in the middle of the mist and of the whistle of the seagulls.
