I have emigrated to Canada. Last Tuesday.
My – what a journey. I come here kicking and screaming inside, grieving the loss of the view from our Brighton apartment – the sale of which still causes me to say ‘Stupid Boy.’
The boat has arrived, the immigrants have to find their way, create a new life and everyone is busy around you. Twas ever thus for those landing off the boat in a new land.
And… everything’s the same. Well not entirely but 90% is the same! I’m reminded of a paragraph in Steve Jobs Biography when Steve went to China and looked around him and said “We’re all the same.” I concur.
So… what? Ha – well I am reminded yesterday of my time back in 2000 working in the States. The air is different, the view from Starbucks up to a mountain at 6:30 am different.
Why am I here? God knows…. So I’m Shouting at the Sky and sorting out what’s on the ground.
A great prompt for lyric writing and Songsmithing…
