    Healing / Moving On

    I have realised over the years, that "home" is inside my head and not some external place that can be marked by GIS. It is not at the side of a partner. It is not in the spray of my children's achievements.I am "home". Wherever I move to is home. Meeting people on my journeys are...

    This year, like every year,

    my friends and I are going back home... This year, like every year, they bring the spoils of their triumphs.. But this year, unlike every year, I am no homecoming king.. I am a shadow of my former glory with a burden on my shoulders.
