Jaspa’s Journey 2: The Pride of London ebook

You wouldn’t believe what our Ratses friend Ernest went through to become a member of the secret Ses society known as ‘the Pride’, even though its leaders obviously don’t want him to join. (Fortunately, you can read all about how we helped him achieve his dream in Jaspa’s Journey 2: The Pride of London).

But Ses or human, all of us feel the need to belong. Whether family, tribe, club, team, or just a group of friends, we all want to be part of something bigger than ourselves. All these things help shape who we are, often in ways we don’t even realise or consider.

Unsurprisingly then, leaving all this behind and relocating to a new town is a not to be taken lightly. And moving to a new country – when suddenly even your nationality makes you an outsider – can be an even bigger wrench. Believe me, I’ve done it!

In such circumstances, what can you do but put down new roots and find new ways to belong? Maybe by joining a new club or team. By making new friends. Perhaps even starting a new family.

IMG_3623Yesterday I was honoured to witness a friend making one of the biggest commitments possible to their new home, by becoming a citizen of their adopted country.

So congratulations to Flavia, Canada’s newest citizen!

Becoming a Citizen!

Becoming a Citizen!

Someone looks happy!

Someone looks happy!
