I am no longer afraid to call Singapore home.
to call any place home.
the fear of roots no more encroaches
or entangles my heart like it so easily used to –
suffocating me, keeping me at the fringes –
happy I could pretend to know and love
without being known and loved.
home is a community of grace
I wish to dwell in forever.

One of my students suggested that I read out my posts, so here is my attempt below. Take a listen at my “blog-a-loud” and let me know if it’s something I should continue. :-)
