The Grove Word Prompt: Aliens

Velvet Ashes Aliens

We wrestle with the tension, finding ways to dig deep roots in our cross-cultural location while never fully belonging. We are citizens of somewhere and nowhere, calling more than one place home.

Aliens and Citizens.

We are both, aren’t we?

We will be walking down both of these roads over the next two weeks, remembering we are strangers (and sometimes very strange) and uncovering what it means to be a citizen. This week, ponder with us what it means to be an alien in our line of work, and show up at The Grove to share your thoughts and comments. What do the people in your context think of foreigners? Share your alien stories over on Instagram this week with the hashtag #VelvetAshesAliens.

How have you been feeling your foreignness lately?
