I’ve been getting inspiration for posts from other bloggers these days. This post’s inspiration comes from Brian Fishbone, a community builder and professional whom I know from his time here in Korea. Brian is now based in Philadelphia, where I also have family, and he has chosen to make this city his home for over a decade. Much of what Brian writes about is reaching out and “Becoming” yourself by becoming part of your community and becoming something for other people (I think that’s a fair way of putting it).
As Brian said at the start of his original post, “I believe a big part of “becoming you” is finding a place you can call home”, and I couldn’t agree more than him. This is something I’ve been asking myself a lot through my posts here, and while I seem to always look to Ireland, I know that there’s a pretty good chance that I won’t find my final home there. But still, Dubllin is my city, and this is my love letter to that city.
