Ahhhhhhh…….a total disconnection from reality, the relaxed ambience, the sand dunes, the kites making beautiful patterns in the sky and rhythmic tunes from nearby chiringuitos adding to the cool vibes – even my girls were surprisingly chilled!
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist, came to my mind and how Santiago the Andalusian boy, set foot through Tarifa to visit a gypsy woman to interpret his dreams. I remember how the book made me feel like then and still does! It is most magical story I have ever read. Why? Because us humans we love to dream and to seek, and the anticipation driving us to the unknown is just exhilarating!
The Alchemist follows the journey of an Andalusian shepherd boy, Santiago. Santiago, believing a recurring dream to be prophetic, decides to travel to a Romani in a nearby town to discover its meaning. There, a gypsy woman tells him that there is a treasure in the Pyramids of Egypt.
Upon his travels he will meet many but the Alchemist will take him to his destiny, the treasure. The treasure? Well I won’t wish to spoil the surprise………
The core of the novel’s philosophy is “when you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true”.
Do you DREAM?
Do you SEEK?
Do you possess a recurring inner chatter?
