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.

Sylvie: A 60-word story

Born to an Italian father and Spanish mother

Her heart and soul raised in the Swiss Alps

I never realised that as a woman, I would have so much to carry on my shoulders.

Hair messy, eyes wild with laughter

It is good we came here, to mix things up a bit.

She closed her eyes, warming them in the morning sun

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.

 

 

 

Vernal Equinox

Steady rise and fall

Re-birth comes in different forms

Golden green life slow
