I wrote this letter describing her transition from Jazmin to Luna. In short, she went through an eclipse and I wanted to share it with you. Becoming and growing into your true self is something that is scary and beautiful. I wanted to show and tell how this process took place. Part 1 of 3. Photo and writing by me.
This is a letter to you and only you. When I first met you I didn’t know how to respond, to be honest.
You became a part of me that was unfamiliar, but also so amazing.
I guess that comes with any type of new experience though.
Especially with a new person. We crossed like an eclipse.
The sun going over the moon and our ring was so beautiful.
It was a light I had never seen before, something that I was becoming, what I am and more all at once.
At that moment I became everything and nothing all at once.
The moon is just magic. It goes through phases just like us. Pieces are hidden by darkness but yet so beautiful.
“Live by the sun, love by the moon,” she said. The darkness and light met and merged together for one final time. And I heard...
“There’s a fire in you that will never die.”
