Inspiration

I'd like to live in a Hausbót or a fisherman's cottage by the water. I am born in October under the water mark of a scorpion, and water follows me all my life. Twice a year I go fishing, I love the Baltic Sea, where I often return, and when I'm in Holland, my steps lead to the nearest source of water whether it's the canal or the sea... and yet I often forget to drink the water.
