When I visit my hometown, I am usually torn between my past, present and future self.
The past self, is what people used to know me for. It is a powerful self, because they have not followed through the changes I went through. There are things I might have not liked of this self, at the time. It could be that I have been shy.
And then, if I stay too long in one place, I feel that I betray my future self. Especially when I grow out of the image others see me for there. So I need to go to this new place where I can reinvent myself.
The old self could be great, but I might have disagreed with the public persona, others shared for me. For example, if I have been this shy kid, I might want to go places where I will be known for my adventurous spirit and exploits.
And if this is the case, I might again need to move on and also be known as someone who is bonding and member of a community.
Is there a best place? Is there Homme?
Homme can be everywhere, if it allows us to have been, to be and to continue becoming, exploring, loving, developing, independently of age.
