searching for home~ Edinburgh

Ask me where I am from, where home is, and I find myself thinking before I answer you. This is the case for so many of us these days. We come from mixed race marriages, we leave our home countries, we live in a new place, we move again, we marry from yet another country and our children are left with a number of origins to choose from and call home. Recently someone asked my 7 year old niece where she was from, and she answered: “I am a Swiss/Lebanese/New Zealander and I live in UAE”, whereas my 9 year old daughter is a German/American/Lebanese who lives in China. Is this the face of new world citizenship and the age of planetary close connections and integration? I wonder…

  2. As a Pakistan-born, Africa raised, Us educated frenchman, married to a colombian, and now living in Mexico, I couldn’t agree more. Citizens of the world, someone said above. Aren’t we all? Maybe the day there are more of us, there will be less war and suffering? (On peut rêver!) Merci pour vos superbes photos.

  4. LOVE that photo! so true – I am American/Italian, my husband is English/Spanish and our kids are now living (coincidentally!) in the UAE. Especially here in Dubai, everyone has similar stories – part of the reason it’s a really interesting place to live.
