03 Jul: “Content” with our Citizenship

With the summer in full-swing, I am here in the States on vacation.  Though my time living in Korea has been considerable, I can’t help but feel completely relaxed and “at home” when I land at the JFK airport.  Once the immigration officer stamps my passport and says to me “Welcome Home”, there is a sense of comfort and familiarity that I begin experiencing.

06 Jul: Home

This summer I will be going home for a few weeks. Thinking of home evokes a flood of memories filled with family, friends, and places to visit. My senses come alive as I imagine all the familiar and comforting sights, sounds and tastes of my youth. I was discussing the idea of “home” with one of my best friends today and he went on about how “home” is never as good as we imagine.
