  • I have decided to move back home.

    However, this decision I have done surprisingly many times now. I make the decision. I do it. I move back home, or at least I think I move back home, but after a little while I realize I have been cleverly cheating myself. You see, it seems as if I might not really understand what this "home" thing is all about. Or it might be that there are many layers to this idea I have of "home". So I decide to r e a l l y move back home, really, really, just like "everyone else"; staying in one place, having routines, doing my little things. And then I realize that once again I have not done what I wanted to do or thought I was doing....

    At first I thought it was enough to just come back home to Sweden. I kept traveling all over the country in my job, but only within limited boarders now, not changing country all the time. Well yes of course, occasionally also going elsewhere but just every second month or so, for work. But my e m p l o y e r was now Swedish so it was different. I was home!

    So why still having this feeling as if I was part of everything and nothing at the same time, what I thought would be healed by being in one place?

    Something had to be done and so I quit the job.

    Finally all fixed and settled in one place, not moving outside the city boarders for either work or pleasure, I find it more challenging than probably anything else I have experienced. A challenge I am happy to take though. This is where I want to be, I just need to find my own way of doing it.
