Where is your home?
When I think about my home, I like to think about the reasons I would like to call it home. Is it a place? Is it the people in it? Or the events that have happened that bring the sense of home to my mind? I think it is all of the above.
I was born and raised in Colombia. I have family there and I visit very often. I moved to Boston 18 years ago, and this is the place where my home is. I felt in love in Boston, got my house, had my daughter, and met many people, at school and work, who have changed my life. I love my home because it is the place I share with the people I love the most. I also like the spaces I have at my home… one of them is my small shop in the basement, where I have all my tools. I love building and creating projects. I have also all my Legos and robotic sets that I have collected over the years.
I have slowly introduced my daughter to some of the wonders of my shop, but most important, I have worked and learned with her in many projects, the same way I used to do with my father.
And where is your home?
