I'm homesick, it is very unnerving. I've lived half my life away from my homeland, speak my adopted language fluently and am generally pretty ok with how life turned out geographically.
Last year was supposed to be the year I went home. To meet my new niece, play with my other niece who I haven't seen since she was an infant, and attend my grandmother's 100th birthday. At home awaited a hug from my mom, who I haven't seen physically since 2018 and whose home is the only place I truly feel relaxed. At home the air smells different, the wind blows softer, the tastes awaken a flood of memories.
I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling homesick this year, and while your home might not be my home I'm going to share a small selection of Norwegian art below so you can step into the cool light of the north with me.
