Dusk settles like a whisper over the rugged seacoast bringing with it scents of pomegranate, cassis, coffee and cacao. On the sand a small fire can be seen burning from a tangle of cypress driftwood. A female figure with hair of midnight emerges holding a weathered rope. She ties a knot as she looks up to the stars which now pepper the sky and another as she stares out at the sea which has begun to crash in violent waves.
