Carry Home:

Some say that home is always in your heart, but when I first moved to the States from Nigeria, it didn’t make any sense. To feel closer to home, I’ve worn my necklaces and my father’s Igbo chieftaincy beads for years. But that provided just a little bit of comfort to me so I sought solace in quiet places by being among trees and by the river. Away from cars and people, the sounds of nature reminded me of the late evenings at home in Nigeria where I would sit outside with my dog by my side, just still. Just silent. Two creatures completely at peace with our surroundings. Listening to the breeze, the insects, the birds, the leaves. Although I am thousands of miles away from my home I can still close my eyes, stand in the right spot, and feel home all around me. Now I know that all I feel comes right out of my heart - Yagazie Emezi
