Three weeks away, and I am homesick.

I miss fresh vegetables. I miss raw herbs and colorful fruit.

I miss people who speak volumes with silence and a significant look.

I miss warm rain and the golden hour, motorcyclists zipping alongside rice paddies, and mountains in the distance.

I miss Dot.

I’ve lived in Thailand for only a year and a half, but it’s the home I feel homesick for. And it took coming to Europe, where everything felt comfortable and familiar, to find out that it’s actually Thailand that has become my home.

  1. I don't know if I'll ever consider Azerbaijan "home", but I know when it's all said and done, I'll leave a piece of my heart here. There's something magical in knowing that places can become such a part of us, isn't there? Someday I'll be an older woman but I'll still be able to smell the aroma of çorək, and miss the way the people here would stop whatever they're doing to stoop and greet my children.

  2. That change in perspective is priceless … to realize home is where you've been planted in this moment. I'm sure it feels good to know in your deepest of heart that you are where you are meant to be … and that being there, in the home you feel homesick for, feel goods to your soul.

  3. Wow, what a powerful realization. You amaze me with your adaptability. You challenge me to be less rigid.

  4. Home is wherever your heart is and obviously your home is in Thailand and that is a blessed thing!



  5. Oh, I remember that moment!! There's nothing like it. It's a very comforting threshold to cross…continued joy, and safe trip HOME!
