We are our origins transformed by time and experiences.

We are part of a team, a type of blood and a skin color that teaches us from small, to call it family.

We learn over time to let go of it and let the adventure take us far, somewhere less safe, but full of new experiences.

We transform ourselves, to relearn everything again, to return to the place that has cradled us and, again, we can call it family. And if all this fits within a house, apart from the family, we will have a Home.
