ON THE THIRD OF JULY, I was on a plane on my way back ‘home’ to Orlando, Florida. During the summer, I would eventually travel quite a lot – from Orlando to New Hampshire, stopping on the way in North Carolina, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. My travels were both for pleasure and work.
I returned to Orlando, Florida after numerous trips already and sighed,
Well, I guess I didn’t spend much time at home after all this summer break.
The following day I was on my way back to Stockholm – the city where TGS all began. I was on my way to celebrate my 45th birthday.
For two weeks, I spent time with the first people we met when we started our journey a year ago. It felt as if we had never left. Walking into YBC was a TGS homecoming.
Andrew met up with me, and I think he said it best,
It is so great to feel so loved!
They were our cheerleading team when we started, and they still are. They followed us as we moved, changed, and grew last year. They want to keep up with us and meet up once more when we are in Berlin in 2012. Their desire to continue with a strong bond and connection with TGS is still alive and well.
After celebrating my birthday with two parties, lunch, coffee, and dinner on numerous occasions with YBC colleagues, I felt fresh, renewed, and excited to begin a new academic year.
When it was time to leave Stockholm, I prepared to fly ‘home’ to Costa Rica. At that point, I had to stop and think: Where was ‘home’? Why did I feel so intensely that I was leaving home as I got ready to part from Stockholm? Was home Orlando? Was home Costa Rica? And then I remembered: home is where the heart is.
