‘We were home, but we weren’t really home at all...’ Naomi Reed describes her sense of disorientation as she re-adjusted to life back in Australia, after six years in Nepal.

She also wrestled with ‘what it means to be a citizen of heaven and of earth ... both at once, on the same day and in the same country’.
