I think my relationships with countries embody the same pattern that my relationships with people, or the general transformation of all relationship patterns, for that matter. From the idea of exclusivity we move to the notion of multiplicity and then, eventually - for a time being or permanently - seek refuge in renunciation. Until the cycle repeats again... or not. This suspended state is where I currently find myself, nationality-wise. A citizen of many lands, and none in particular.
I did something funny today. Revising my resume, I added my future plans to it. I don't think it's a common practice to include the deeds we haven't yet brought to realisation to our curriculum vitae, yet why not? A human being exists in 3 temporal states (at least), the past, the present and the future. So any resume can not be complete without any of these components.
