I took this picture of the waters down at the Bahamas. We were at the Blue Lagoon island where we were going to interact with a dolphin. To this day, I am amazed by the blue waters of the Bahamas. Blue is my favorite color, but aquamarine is my favorite to be specific. Nevertheless, shades of blue always captures my attention and imagination.
Water has always been part of my life. When I was younger and I’d be swimming in our pool in Brazil surrounded by palm trees, my mom would say I spent a majority of my time underneath the water. My real name sounds similar to what a mermaid is called in Portuguese. When I’d say my name to Brazilians, they’d say, “Oh, like the word ‘mermaid’!!” My middle name should have been Ariel. Why do you think I became a lifeguard many, many years ago for the summers? To save people and be near water.
I will return back to you. I miss you too much!
