I’ve written about the idea of home and finding a sense of belonging numerous times, but I got a recent photo challenge to capture Home in an image. A year ago this may have stumped me, but I’ve come to realize there are in fact multiple places that feel like home, although they’re home in different ways.
With regard to SP, this image below sums up home for me. It’s the part of my walk where I’m nearly at my apartment. It’s the highest point of the hilly road, and I feel like I’m above the Paulista skyscrapers I see ahead. Despite the insane wiring hanging above, I feel a sense of calm, a sense of simple joy. This is home.
