|From the archives 2011.|
My thoughts are spinning and I am thinking: maybe I could work in a different part of the country, maybe I could go and work abroad. Maybe I could just travel. Exciting! but one thing returned to me - and that was the things that I would miss around here where my nest is. People, lanscapes, houses.
I thought about people that I know who live far away and it is years between each time they see their relatives. Could that be me?
I thought about myself at 19,when I left this country and wowed never to return to live, but eventually did so. It is something about this place and these people and this landscape. My nest! I don't think I thought twice about what I left behind at the time I left it. So maybe it is just age that creates these thoughts.
|From 2011: She is so much bigger now :).|
I haven't really taken a lot of photographs lately, so I flicked through my archives to see if I could find something to illustrate my nest. I chose these three from 2011/12 that to me illustrates home, people and community. I'd miss that if I left, but there are other things to see and experience elsewhere also. And other people to meet. But my nest is here! And I might just stay forever and ever and ever. Or rebuild the nest somewhere else? Now, that is another thought!!
