Many people have asked me why I’ve chosen this day to start?
It’s because I wanted it to be special, very special, so that we will all remember! 0202-2020 is a palindromic date: when a date written out numerically is the same when turned back-to-front. No matter your culture and how you write the date, it will be the same: mm/dd/yyyy or dd/mm/yyyy or yyyymmdd. It happens once in the millenium! (Until 0303-3030)
This date is also a very unique and powerful day, named “imbolc day” which is the midpoint between the Soltstice and Equinox, and a celebration of Mother Earth, and is also known as “Purification Day”. And that’s what this date is about, the start of a great “purification”. Of our oceans and planet! Because everything starts with the first step in the right direction. My voyage and research have as mission to raise awareness about the state of our oceans and also raise our consciousness to make changes in our every day life to be kinder to the environment. So let’s celebrate this purification, promise of renewal, of infinite potential, of Earth awakening and the life force stirring. It is the time to let go of the past and to look to the future, clearing out the old, the pollution and plastic garbage and feel empowered of all we can achieve!
