Home Sweet Home

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace.

Vernon Baker

When I was growing up I was trying to do everything possible to leave the place I called home and now I will do everything possible to return there again. Isn’t it funny how things change? I think every person has a journey they need to take, which shapes them, but sometimes the journey can lead you full circle back to your roots. There is nothing better than feeling that you belong somewhere, to know that no-one will contest your spot on this earth and no-one will require an explanation of who you are. After having lived in many different places throughout my life, I find it liberating to go back to a place where I am not fighting for space. And most of all, I feel the best place to make a difference is right where you started, not where you went “to succeed” and to play by someone else’s rules. Home is where I make the rules and I am blessed to call this little piece of paradise home.
