The Past is a Foreign Country

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Study Abroad.”

If you were asked to spend a year living in a different location, where would you choose and why?

If I could spend a year in the ‘country’ of the year of my birth. In the company of my birth parents at the time they gave me up for adoption. I would see my parents for the confused and frightened young people that they were. I would see that they had problems that they couldn’t face – and that I wasn’t at fault.

They say travel broadens the mind. I think this is a journey that I need to make in my own mind.
