About the background: There is a place of longing that towers above everything. This house by the sea. No luxury, no pomp, just the original, just the pure feeling of closeness to the water and the beach. Especially in times when the here and now makes me cramped and my soul becomes heavy, as the beach seems far away, my thoughts are more than ever on this house by the sea. Nothing has more magic than the ocean. And a place where everything falls away from me.

"It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.”
~ John F. Kennedy (September 14, 1962)
