Music and Video

Here is a space in which I am collecting talks, music, and video presentations on and around the topic of Third Culture Kids. They may be of interest to you on your journey, and if you would like me to include a song or video, please contact me here and send me the link. I’d love to include your contributions.

Pico Iyer – Where is home?

The Cinematic Orchestra – To Build A Home

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home
‘Cause, I built a home
For you
For me
Until it disappeared
From me
From you
And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust
Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it’s knees
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
And, I built a home
For you
For me
Until it disappeared
From me
From you
And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust

Alice Merton – No Roots
