Robert: A 60-word story

He was asked where he felt at ‘home’

A smile and a wince

I grew up not far from here in a small town.

I immediately moved out when I came home from travels.

Not generations but mentalities

A disconnect from those who had returned

I want to be in an urban space, where it is dynamic and social.



Lena: A 50 word story

A shift from the corporate world

To trailing spouse

Opened her eyes to new ways of being

I no longer aspire to have that big career.

Her life at a crossroads

The creation of new community in each location

I think ‘coming home’ was the toughest transition of all.




The edges of time

Look up

And reflect on the edges of time

Those that have been there 

All along

You didn’t see them 

Until now.
