This Is Home: Unconditional Love

This Is Home Angela Ressa I Am A Triangle

Like many of you, I had a really rotten childhood. I won’t go into details in this particular post, but I do want to mention the importance of loving your children in a way that they can feel it. Unconditional love. Find a way to demonstrate that love so they grow up with a deep knowing that they, as human beings are loved, unconditionally. Because the alternative is that they will have to live in constant doubt. Desperately searching for …

Les Anderson Unsplash I Am A Triangle

Moving to a new country is exciting, stimulating and exhilarating. It can also be exhausting and just plain scary. I moved to Egypt two years ago to be with my Egyptian husband, and whilst it was one of the most thrilling experiences of my life, for a long time every day presented challenges that drained and frustrated me. In truth, it doesn’t matter how much research you do, or how many books you read, nothing can truly prepare you for …

Takeoffs and Landings

I met a man named Barry on a flight from Munich from London. I observed my children, as they used their British accents acquired at their English school in Germany to converse with him. I smirked at how they would seamlessly switch their little voices, depending on whom they were speaking to.

Life: Real and Imagined

Growing up in the United States as the child of immigrants who didn’t know or care to know about the quintessential American childhood experiences and rites of passage, I didn’t get to take pilgrimages to what are considered iconic vacation destinations for families, including Disney World. Nevertheless, I eagerly looked forward to the Disney movies on Sunday evenings —The Wonderful World of Disney. My eyes glued to the television, I would dreamily stare as the beautiful castle appeared, evoking images …
