"WHERE IT WAS DARK"

1. m._ Astron_. Total or partial transitory concealment of a star due to the interposition of another celestial body.
The word eclipse comes from the Greek ekleipsis, which means disappearance, abandonment. Every time an eclipse occurs, it occurs one night within a day; minutes later, a new day begins within another day already begun.
Light, dark, light. A rebirth that takes place as the result of a concealment, as if it were a cosmic ritual. A ritual that takes place here out of necessity, not for entertainment.
Those who live with their back to their essence, do so in a state of constant abandonment, overshadowed by the shadow of how they should be. That of the unattainable and cyclical canons and socially imposed conventions.
When a beam of light blinds us, we close our eyes or put a hand so that it does not reach us. We need that instant of shadow, so that we can later see. To discover our true essence. We disappear to be able to see the light that now enters where it was dark.
