Searching for roots, longing for roots. But...what if you are not meant to have roots? Roots in the sense of being part of a large community that celebrates a certain flag, a certain passport. A certain language, a certain culture, a certain belief system. Therefore, does the lack of roots mean freedom?

It is this detachment that might be also the key for the creation of something new. Leaving all bias aside, stepping out of one's comfort zone.

The key to freedom and unprejudiced coexistence might be first to detach, or at least to try, from your cultural identity. And see what is left?
