Roots

Rootlessness……….yes I think I am rather rootless, that is why I “travel” in my mind to other places to find that spot that could make me feel attached to....but I do not find it and I do not think I would ever find it discarting others. I really prefer to be an outsider. I admire and enjoy diversity I seldom feel comfortable in my place. I am like a foreigner in my own land. Looking at the good side of this I think I am lucky to be as free as a bird with no flag, no frontiers, no cliché personal identification.
Most wars are because people fight for their land, their culture, their traditions. I only watch and admire so many cultures, so many lands, so many traditions and so much diversity that it is impossible to feel that the wonderful tapestry of differences cannot be worth and wonderful.

Interesting thoughts, it's certainly good to be without a rigid sense of personal identification.

Interesting. So long as you take the essence of who you are with you, I believe you can be at home anywhere.

Thanks for sharing our insights.
