We are all visitors here
brought here by our parents
and their parents before them
without an owners manual or guidebook.
We are the total of our past, our upbringing, our education
we are passing through.
it is a short visit
but I am not in exile,
I are not running from or running to
I am a visitor here
learning the language
finding the things that engage me
Sharing my knowledge
Caring for those near me
Loving those around meuntil it is time to move on.
