Close your eyes, and put your fingers in your ears and shut out the angry chaos for a moment. Now take a deep breath and imagine a country you want to live in, a country you wish existed, a country where you’d truly feel at home. . .”
This book is a collection of some of the imaginings. In 500 to 800 words (or an illustrative alternative) within a month.
It’s well worth a read. But an even better idea would be to do it. To share this prompt with family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, networks. Then to discuss those imaginings. And decide how they can begin to be made real.
I don’t know about you, but several times over the last few years, I’ve wondered about moving. To a different part of the country, or even to a different country.
This book reminds me that it’s better to improve than move. And that I am responsible for the home I live in.
