Jairo Nemocon 1945 (Bogota)

Some people say…
I have a home in North America…
Also… that I’ve a home in South America…
And… that… I have a virtual home in Central America.

In both continents I feel at home.
To ME…, there is only one continent:
America.
From Pole to Pole.
From the North Pole…
To the South Pole.
From very cold to shivering cold.

Home is where my beautiful wife…
Shares her precious life with ME.
Home is where MY adorable daughter…
Lives a peaceful and intense intellectual life.
Home is where I write MY books.
Home is where MY planet…
Goes once around MY star: the Sun…
Every day!
Every day!
Every day!
¡Todos los días!
For ME…
That’s home.

I…
Am: Jairo Nemocon.
