Wondering

Summer gives us a chance to travel and to return to places which are still dear in our hearts. For many it can be their old family home in a remote village… For me it´s London, East London to be precise, the area where I spent a good chunk of my life and where my children were born… It´s wonderful to stay here again with our loved friends, to feel at home, so far from home…

And the wondering comes up, it´s unavoidable, the thought of what it would have been like if we had stayed, if we had never moved away from here… The surroundings have changed, in many ways improved but it´s still so familiar… I feel safe here, despite the feeling of uneasiness that seeing an environment like this in another town would give me…

People ask me if I would go back to live in London. Well, I could never say Never Ever, you just never know how many turns your life can take! But I must say that having the opportunity to come here, to see my friends´ children (same age as mine) growing  and developing, it´s something that opens our minds enormously. Basically, there´s no comparison between us, the connexion we felt all these years ago, mums and babies, still remains and there is a gorgeous bond that marvels me as I see it not fading at all with time…
