The benefits of sharing similar life experiences
Apart from exchanging the obligatory “dobrý den” with the moms at school or neighbors out walking their dogs, I haven’t had any new encounters for months. My daily routine, while pleasant, is primarily comprised of a series of ordinary moments. Sometimes, I forget that I’m raising my family in a place that is so far from where I grew up. My roles and responsibilities probably wouldn’t be much different regardless of where my family was to live. Our life here has settled into a pattern that is reassuring, even if it lacks the excitement of the unknown.
