I’m Coming Home!

It’s been in the making for 2 years. I never wanted to leave home. It was the first time I felt like myself, where I kicked off my shoes and sang at the top of my lungs. And then I left. I left home to come to this strange place I was born to. I came to this foreign land where warmth flowed from family but my surroundings chilled me. This isn’t home. No matter that I was born in the heart of Toronto. No matter that I was raised in Scarborough. No matter that I rather like Markham. It is still as foreign a place as Cuba and Dominican and Panama have been on vacations. I will miss those I leave behind, of course. I will miss my friends and family dearly. I cannot, however, stay here. The mountains are pulling me, the crane is calling me and Mother Armenia is smiling her own warmth, encouraging me to return to her bosom. I’m coming home. In 24 hours, I will be standing in terminal 1 with a one way ticket in hand and my eyes looking forward, laughingly stepping onto the next page, a new chapter in my life. I know it won’t be easy. I know it may be crazy. Hell, some think I belong in white building guarded by psychiatrists. Doesn’t matter to me. I feel the winds beckoning me home, and who am I to refuse them. So, with a fire in my eyes and a smile on my face, chin held high and heart overflowing with emotion, I am on my way home…

  2. What a wonderful news!!! It is awesome that enthusiastic people, like you, come back to their motherland giving new blood and energy. You know that you have many friends in Armenia ready to help you.

    I hope all your dreams come true, and you will never regret leaving your dear family behind.
    May you be an example to the rest of the world specially the young ones like you.,… I also hope you will find your other half one day and be happy ever after in the land of your dreams.
    all the best Tamar
