I want to say Welcome to any visiters that come to me from Renny's blog! I posted on RennyBA's Tarella this weekend about my wonderful hiking experience in the mountains of Norway. We have gotten a lot of comments from Renny's regular readers and I have been encouraged to start blogging myself, so here I am.
I am trying to think of a good description for my blog but I'm not yet certain what my central theme will be. I learned from Renny's experience that it is a good idea to have a common theme to post regularly about. I am thinking about making my theme about the experience of moving to another country and living your life with a sort of divided heart and a foot in each land. My home will always be New York, but my home is more and more here as well. It is here that my core family is now, our house, or lives, my school and job and friends. So what is 'home' really? Home is where you're heart is they say, what if your heart is in two places? "Home is where you hang your hat," well I hang my hat up when I am at work too, that doesn't make it home! Oh I seem to be having an Andy Rooney moment here LOL!
I thought today I would post a picture from my other home. Here are the mountains I played in as a child, the Adirondacks in upstate New York. You can't see much of the mountain actually because I am taking the picture while standing on it. Anybody recognise Lake George?
