You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.
― Miriam Adeney
I’ve moved a lot during my life, so my place in the world is made up of all the people and places I’ve loved over the years. At the same time, it’s also the place where I am at the moment.This weekend, my city is experiencing a heat wave. The Salish Sea and the sky are a brilliant sapphire blue. On days like this, Dallas Road is my place in the world.
I’m not much of a sunbather, so I quickly snapped this photo before retreating to the air-conditioned car. But I only need a glimpse of this beautiful view to gain perspective and feel a renewed sense of peace and tranquillity.
It’s fun to see how others enjoy this place in the world too. In the next photo, you can see a homemade boat sailing in a pool of sunlight. We could hear the mother and her kids laughing and singing as they piloted the small vessel close to the shore.
So, even though I wasn’t born here, and even though I miss family and friends in other cities, I love my current Place in the World.
