New Horizons and a Good old Home

 
  

We’re back.
Alhamdulillah, finally we made our way back home, back into our little valley, back into our personal rhythm and life.
After having been away nearly a month in Germany and Switzerland, it feels so good to have a home to come home, subhan’allah.

Since I am nearly never going out of our village with three kids, travelling always means so much to me:
to leave my beloved house and our valley always makes me sad and coming to the city always shocks me with all the modern life, the noise and the rushing around.
But, mashaallah, then there comes the excitement of flying and crossing countries and there are so many new inspirations to find, lovely people to meet, new plans to make and relationships to maintain… Although all of this makes me feel exhausted and tired sometimes, I really love to travel and to explore new horizons: What an amazing blessing it is to live in between two cultures!

We’re working on big new projects and have a lot to look forward to, incha’allah (soon there will be more to be said about it.) And while we had no computer and internet after coming home last week, I enjoyed nature, the quiet time, thoughts about the past and the future and I (re)discovered the good old fountain pen and paper to write on and to process all the work we did during our long journey.
It is sometimes good to be forced into “old school manners” and I think I will keep on writing a handwritten diary… But is feels good to come back to this blogging-place here as well, and so I wish you a blessed weekend friends, see you next week, incha’allah, may peace be with you!

  4. Chère Itto,
    je suis heureuse de te retrouver. Je sais que la vallée t’a manqué pendant ton séjour en Europe. Je t’imagine en paix, dans ta cuisine, près du feu, des nouvelles idées pleins la tête.
    Soit heureuse et créative ! Cécile

  5. Liebe Itto,
    schön, dass Du wieder da bist! Ich habe Dich vermisst. Es war immer so traurig, keinen neuen Eintrag in Deinem Blog zu finden.

    Schön, dass Du ein Haus hast, auf dass Du Dich immer wieder freust! Es gibt nichts, was einem soviel Halt gibt wie ein geliebtes, Geborgeheit austrahlendes (Eltern)-Haus. Die Liebe zu Deiner Wahlheimat überträgt sich bestimmt auch auf Deine Kinder, lässt sie Wurzeln schlagen, damit sie später umso selbstsicherer flügge werden.
    Ich freue mich schon auf Deine Berichte zu den diversen Projekten, die anstehen und vielleicht auf Berichte Deiner Reise.

    Liebe Grüße und ein schönes Ankommen zuhause!
    Steffi
