This video was filmed in Portugal at Alvão Natural Park situated in Trás-os-Montes, where some of the scenes are burned forests; I composed this song two years ago and I feel that today more than ever this message is important to everyone, the appreciation for Nature is no longer a aesthetic movement but a global need. Trás-os-montes, my homeland. It was here in your mountains that I’ve learned that your landscapes are therapy, that life is a plurality of dualities, of narratives and perspectives: burn and sow, love and fear, hide and manifest, consciousness and matter, feminine and masculine, ying and yang… Life is not in the division and separation; they exist in an equilibrium, in an acceptance of everything that is apart of a whole. Through the observance of cycles of nature and its ancient history, I realize that life travels in a constant expansion of a moving spiral that pursuits the question of what it wants, what is it made of. We are also nature and, thus, I leave this video with the same question.
Big thanks to André Macedo that knew how to capture in beautiful pictures the gestures of the words.
