I just had a breakthrough today.
Once upon a time I was a caged bird longing to fly into the wide open fields, dive the sea and touch the blue blue sky. A friend once told me that people choose to be nomads because they're still searching for something they haven't found yet. What exactly was I searching for? It troubled me for a while that I still didn't know the answer to that question.
For a long time I was not ready to return home. Then it suddenly struck me today, like a lightning bolt. I'm overwhelmed by a realisation that suddenly made so much sense.
The thought of home is like a mother's loving embrace through the eyes of a lost child. The thought of home is shining sweetly in the distance, welcoming, warm and smiling at me. At long last my journey ends after 1.5 years of travel. I can hardly wait!
