way back home

Lately, I have been missing home..... a lot. I left home when I was 18. Few years ago my sister moved to Toronto and we've been living together since. Gradually, my parents sold the house we grew up in and moved to a smaller apartment.

Ever since my parents sold the house, visiting home doesn't really feel like visiting "home". My old room is now someone else's room. My strange mural on my wall is probably painted over with a new coat of fresh paint. The gazebo and pool in the backyard no longer welcomes me. The new place we now call home doesn't quite feel like a home.

The way to home has changed quite a bit too. Couple of years ago, the city began building giant white windmills on the outskirts of Windsor. The first time I saw them, I thought the bus has made a detour or the driver was lost (which is highly unlikely). I have been on this road many times before and seeing the giant fans circling about made me feel like a stranger. The landscape is now stunning but unfamiliar. I am getting used to seeing them but I still feel alienated.

I feel lost. Trapped in my past. Dwelling in my memories. Where's home? Have I lost my way back home? I am planning another trip to home at the end of the month and it has gotten me thinking a lot about what is home and where I belong.

I like spending time looking up at the sky especially when there are clouds. When you stare at them long enough, you will find all sorts of things floating above you. I found a dragon, a mushroom, a moustache, map of england, chicken wings...... have you found anything today?

sibbald point

sibbald point was perfect place to spend a hot hot summer afternoon. the only downside was the beach water... it wasn't as clean as i thought it would be... but bbq was ten times more delicious than cooked at home and had so much fun playing ball with friends.

tommy thompson park

4 hours of walking, taking pictures, walking.... walking....
next time, i am bringing my bike.
the park is only open on weekends. it's conservation area, a home to many birds fly in and out of toronto.
it was amazing to see the birds fly and listen to them sing.
it was a perfect place to forget the busy city living and relax.

마음이 맑아지는 기분. 최고!
