Hello Ines,

You write in poetic terms, "... ocean full of glare and heat." What perfect metaphors! What I thought first when I saw the photo was "a carpet of sunflowers," but yours is more appropriate. As a music teacher who is happens to speak excellent English, and most likely know art as well, did you know that van Gogh in his "yellow period" had been on digitalis. It comes from a plant called "foxglove" and his physician, Dr. Gachet, had prescribed it to him. (He suffered from bipolar disorder.) It makes a person see yellow. In that period, the great post-Impressionist painted his famous sunflower paintings, and interior and exterior walls all in bright yellow.

Have a good Sunday,
