A ceremony of transit for an iron soul.

A meditation on death inspired by Pessoa.
A handhold for those who experienced a loss.
Dedicated to those who go, and to those who stay.


“Death is a bend in the road,
To die is to slip out of view.
If I listen, I hear your steps
existing as I exist.
The earth is made of heaven.
Error has no nest.
No one has ever been lost.
All is truth and way.”


Fernando Pessoa
