Almost exactly 18 months ago I wrote a very similar post, a meme I suppose. It wasn't very easy but interesting to do. I thought it would be a good exercise to try it again to see how it might have changed. With hindsight it would have been more sensible to have written it without any reference to my last effort but, too late.
I am from anywhere.
I am from gentle mists and green hills, lilting voices and music, from a land of poets and artists. And from fairy tales, rebellion and impulsive passions. From running, playing on the sands.
I am from burning sunshine on my back, dry grass and bush fires. I am from white mosquito nets billowing in the evening breeze. I am from the scent of dry earth as the first rains fall, from the bright blades of new grass a few days later. I am from overripe mangoes and guavas dropping from the trees.
I am from cities of romance with breathtaking architecture and amazing art. From strolling and gazing, learning, absorbing the atmosphere, listening and feeling. And delighting in the life.
I am from winding lanes and tall, unkempt hedges, thatched cottages and orchards, from hens hatching their chicks. I am from wandering and wondering, walking in the woods.
I am from an ancient cathedral city. I am from hustle and bustle and traffic and noise, and buildings rooted in history. I am from desks and computers, journals and books, bookshelves and libraries. From information and learning and searching for knowledge. And I am from sanctuary down by the water meadows.
I am from a wide, gentle river and rural landscapes and chatter in a language not wholly familiar. From castles and ruins and rivers and peace. And from reflections, walking by the river.
I am from everywhere.
Where are you from?
No tagging involved but if anyone does or has done the same, do leave me a link in the comments so that I can visit. I'd love it if you would.
