a place called Home

When you travel, when you're away from home for a long time (it's been 5 years for me now)- you're not in India, America, Brazil or England.... You're in a limbo, in a psychological place you create, a land you cultivate on your own, that is not called Home, but is rather a foreign space that you fill in, and transform into yours, where you live, from within you breathe. And that is the place called "away from home".

It is this place that becomes your sense of identity, and strangely enough, your stability. It is this place that is the source of inspiration, the roots for creation, and paradoxically this is the new "home"- "away from home".

"Away from home" I blossom, I feel free, independent, emancipated, creative, responsible and happy. So I stay 'away from home' and make this place, home.
