We became aware of our wast continent; Eurasia. The landmass we are living on. Living in its north-west corner.
As cultural beings, our minds are turned towards the Atlantic; Asia is far away, America is close.
But I can walk or bike to China, India and Irak.
I can go by train from the railway station in my village to the other side of the continent.
The wolfs and birds roam across the continent, the plants too, but slow.
The deep divide between Europe, the Middle East and Asia is cultural, not biological and geographical.
An amazing, new feeling of belonging to our whole continent, not only to the Scandinavian peninsula or the European corner but to all of it. Wow, my home got broader and more diverse.
