    I looked at me on the picture taken six years ago and noticed the aging. Then, I remembered the morning of 2006, when I took this photo to renew my passport. It was in Elda, on a photography studio close to the office where I spent four years working for a French shoe label.

    Actually, six years it's a lot of time. Don't you think?

    Following the Spanish saying, there are at list three important things that any human being should afford in live: have a kid, plant a tree and write a book. (The saying it's not specific about the sequence, but sometimes the unexpected course of your life does it).

    Well, at list I did manage to plant an Adelpha.

    I didn't know pretty much about plants when I placed the beautiful Adelpha in the garden of the current apartment that I will leave in the next months. The problem it's that I put the young plant too close to the another Adelpha and I'm afraid that the young Adelpha won't have enough place to grow and it will probably die one day. I hope not.

    Last January, when I decided it was time for me to move to New York, I hadn't realized that exactly 6 years ago I had decided to leave a great job in order to look for my real work. The good news are that this years of long search went well -with lots of ups and downs, ou yes- but also with lots of experiences and beautiful people on the way. I think that only because of this it was the time and effort worth.

    Yes, it really was.

    Maybe in 2022, if I'm still alive and must go to renew my passport, I will smile while looking at today's picture.

    Who knows? Maybe before 2022 an explorer of the world and I met by coincidence and we fall in love and have kids and I can add something new to the important 3-list of things to afford in life.

    In the meantime I could also writte a book, which it's actually my Plan B.

    I love having always a Plan B.
