    I have a sense of belonging in two places, but never completely in one. I imagine this geographical 'schizophrenia' has been commonly felt by generations of immigrants and still is experienced by recent asylum seekers to Australia. I arrived from the lush green hills, temperate rainforests, and snow-capped mountains of Aotearoa (the land of the long white cloud), to find that this wide brown land of Australia - the smell of it, the dryness of the air, its vast open spaces - presented challenges to my sense of identity. I felt no immediate connection and interaction with either the natural features or the symbolic and spiritual forces of the landscape.
