I’m not sure I’ve ever known myself and I’m not sure I’ve found a place to belong. I come from two small towns in the north of Scotland and grew up somewhere in between. When I was young, small-town mentalities forced a façade of fear and second-guessing to form an impenetrable wall, separating me from exploring my identity. Eventually, I moved away to the city, but I felt then as if I were missing out on a life and a community that the rose-tinted lens of social media had conditioned me to believe was promised. And now, for some incomprehensible reason, I find myself to be homesick for an imagined past...
