Rejection of the familiar
Living nomadically requires a shift of perspective where the unfamiliar is welcomed. Rejection of the familiar hence becomes a tool for your survival.
While at the outer edge of the world, sometimes the most unexpected occurrences take place to make you feel at home. And it tastes so sweet.
Home: Is it a place? A person? An object? An odor? To me, it’s the mental and physical sensation of finding comfort in something that provides, even if just for a fleeting moment, a sense of fullness and tranquility.
It’s the presence of the faces we love while travelling, the strangers that open their hearts to you, the unlikely communion through the feelings, the place to which you appropriate yourself for a night, or in the beauty of an untamed landscape where cultural confrontation is impossible we are left alone to find ourselves.
