Week 10 – The comeback

A few months ago I was at the airport coming back from a great trip, where I was able to see my family and meet my niece who had just been born. It was a time when I felt a mixture of pain and joy, and it was when I realised that the comeback is good while it lasts …

It is good to come back to a place we know very well, where we grew up and learned many things. It is good to come back to the place we laid our foundations. The comeback leads us to the past. It contains a reminder of everything and everyone, the different, but at the same time recognised, smell in the air! The comeback makes us see that many things have not changed. However, the most important people are changing, because they are getting old: we cannot stop the clock of life – time! The comeback reminds us that one day we left that place to go far away, or perhaps not so very far. We left because we wanted to discover new things, because we wanted to experience different things, because we wanted to discover ourselves. The comeback is good for us, very good, but only while it lasts. Sometimes we need to leave this very well-known place again, we need to seek for more achievements and continue to discover. It is from this point that we discover that the comeback can be endless, and the happiness of the comeback can be connected with the sadness of leaving again.
