I hope that the translation of this poem does not do any harm to the version of former Dutch comedian Toon Hermans. It is beautiful and covers the inspiration of my At Sea project.  

I hope you catch and absorb it.

 

I want to be alone with the sea,

I want to be alone with the beach,

I want my soul that flood away,

not my body and my mind.

 

I just want to dream a little,

about the things I do

and the sea, I'm sure,

she certainly know what I mean.

 

I want to be alone with the waves,

I want to be alone with the sky,

I want to listen to my breath,

I want to listen to my sighs.

 

I want to listen to my silence

then I will continue,

and the sea, I'm sure,

will my silence understood.
