Home is where the Heart is

The Igbo/Yoruba proverb, 'it takes a village to bring up a child,' is a popular saying. But what if you have to search for your village. The famous story of the Ugly Duckling realising he's a swan is well known. But if it doesn't come naturally, being a swan can be a bit exhausting. I'd settle for being in a village of 'good enough' ducklings any day!

Based on Cap of Rushes, a traditional British Folktale that inspired Shakespeare's King Lear, this story is about the drama that can exist within the family you're born into. Fortunately, the clan you go out and make for yourself, can bring solace.
