Josh and I were taking a walk in this Indian land where we are now expats, when he suddenly says: “I just realized the sky is there, and it looks the same as the sky in America.” He goes on saying: “If you look down or around, everything is different to America, the ground is different, the people are different, the animals are different. But the sky is the same. If the sky was red I would be okay with it because I would just think: Oh we are in a different planet. But if I look up at the blue sky, I can feel at home.”
I thought some people might appreciate this poetic tip and decided to share.
So, whenever you are away and you feel homesick, just look up at the sky that you know very well and imagine yourself to be at home.
