This sentiment of nostalgia and fear of forgetfulness is due to the sense of loss and displacement, a feeling of going back to a specific space and time. How to get rid of this so-called ‘historical emotion’ that forbids us to move forward when I crave the sound, chaos, and warmth of Lebanon? How to experience my mind and body to the present moment? How to intersect my memory of the past and imagination of the future to come together in the present? Gateway to the North describes how my life has been in between places, how to find home and a sense of belonging in the Netherlands.
