Ekenäs how can I ever replace you ? I don't want to leave this beautiful town, but I don't have any choice but to leave. Lately I've been wondering how my life could have been if I had not moved to Finland. Imagine me growing up in Iraq and only think of marriage, study and how to learn be a good housewife.. I wouldn't probably be interested in art, photography, cinemas or broaden my horizon. You see my family came from a small town, if you can call it that. I guess I would be living in some birdcage and not to be enthusiastic to learn new stuff or learn about other cultures.
Sometimes it's not that black and white. Who knows. Maybe I would've
been interested in visual arts. I just know I'm one of the lucky one's for living here in Finland. As much as I respect my roots, I consider myself as a finnish person. I've grew up here and my heart is where my home is.
