Solastalgia - Get Well Soon

The balloon that washed up on our remote ‘pristine’ beach on Kangaroo Island adjacent our property is the third one I have picked up over the years. It’s a mystery where this one blew in or washed up from. One was from a pet shop in Adelaide, aptly called ‘Pets Everywhere’! It relates to my periodic feelings of solastalgia. SOLASTALGIA – comfort and pain. -" to describe the sense of existential distress associated with the negative impacts of environmental changes to our loved home environments. More simply, it is a form of homesickness felt when you have not left home".
