Inspired by the Little Prince, Nuno Gama challenge us to honor the planet. We digest this trip in the sleep of a boa constrictor, told through the dreams of Aries. We flew over mountains and rounded volcanoes. Dazzled by flowers, rosebushes and the ancient wisdom of the baobabs. We sat watching twilight and grateful, remembered that if we want, how much each of us can be king and lord of his passing in this life, as well as the legacy we want to leave to the BLUE planet. By the hand of the Little Prince, without greed, shame or any vanity we reconfirmed with the fox, that the essential is only heard with the heart. It is up to each of us to hear the alert of nature, rediscovering within itself the powerful energy of happiness and love in balance with our planet. Just change us and make it happen. May each of us find the difference in giving back to the world.
