    Wow Ivan thanks for this incredible share. It is interesting to think about our “Belonging” and where we come from. I always look at it as my belonging is where I connect. It’s a simple belief but something that means I can belong where ever I go, even if I look different and am different. In New Zealand there is a beautiful Maori way of introducing yourself, they share the name of the river or mountain that their mum and dad came from so it’s more connected to the land. So I would say The Murray river for my dad (he was born in Mildura) and mum is from the Tianjin river (Yallourn).
    Thanks again for sharing @Ivan 🙂
