Words and visuals with an international twist

Chasing Home (Video from Florence)

Why is it that whenever I am up North, I feel so drawn to the South. 

And the further South I go, the more I long for the North.  

It’s because the grass is always greener on the other side, you might say.  

But I believe that the concept of wanting what we do not have is oversimplified.  

Couldn’t it be that we are instead trying to create a bond, a connection to something far from us, to avoid losing a part of ourselves?  

A search for roots and meaning fueled by a fear of definitive decisions? 

The worry that a step in one direction means closed doors in the other.  

Leading us to a constant back and forth, a ping pong ball bouncing between the various havens within our souls.  

And so we travel restlessly, quietly asking ourselves the same question over and over again: 

If I leave a part of me in every place I go, where will I ever belong?
