I wanted to capture what change means to me. So I got myself in a dark room (the unknown), in front of a mirror (reflection), with a tiny source of light (the newness) in silence, where you can hear your own breath and feel the vibrations of your own heartbeat travelling through your body cells up to the surface of your skin.
There are places that light cannot reach... the depth of cold oceans, or even deep under our skin, inside our bodies. When that light is seen, this is when change has occurred.
Or just, what I do when I don't know what to do.

I love signs like that, they make new beginnings so significant, and personal.
It's been a surprisingly amazing trip that after 16 years came to an end. It's been a long trip beyond any expectations I may have had when I stepped in my very first maritime class in Uni, one that showed me who I am, who I can be, one that questioned a lot and above all one that led me to where I am now.
Embracing what has been, makes me so strong to, once again, start fresh.
January 18th was also my name day. What a perfect way to celebrate your name, the sound of your existence.
