I was born in one place, grew up in another and now live in another. And yet, I’m of- again- another. Where does that leave me? What memories do I dredge up when thinking of my hometown? I’ll tell you- it’s a kaleidoscope of cultures, influences and dreams.

Each place has added to me, rather than diluted my being. I regale my kids with stories of my childhood; each one a potpourri of mystery.
My thoughts and words are flavoured by nuances from each origin. From the depths of my spirit, I never fail to find riches- spilling out as words- spinning yet another tale of my hometowns.

as many as stars
adventures tumbling forth
kaleidoscope dreams
