Many pilgrims would travel the world to come and seek his wisdom. One day a King came to visit him. He had everything in his life, power, wealth, and success…but somehow he was not happy. The wizard ZZ took the king to the cliffs and whispered to the ocean: Zimzala, Zimzalaaaa… Zimzaaalaaa!!!!!

The king who did not believe in magic, felt the need to jump in the ocean. The day after, he felt the same need, even stronger. This need, became his reason to live, letting go of everything to be a free mind, to just swim and play in the ways, jump from cliffs and sleep in beautiful caves. The myth says his ghost can still be seen in full moon nights. The wizard, still lives, and the spell of Zimzala lives with him…
