All those journeys changed the kid inside, teaching the kid the meaning of everything. That the journey is the most important thing, more important than the reward itself.
The wish to impress everyone back home, the craving to be accepted by others, and the very definition of being alive changed that day.
Now, it seems that coming back home is no longer necessary. The kid no longer searches for a home, for the Kid found the home in the kid's self. As the wind blows, Kid decides to rest for a while at the lake nearby. A lake with a great tree that stands strong beside the lake. The kid rests his boat under the great tree. The kid thinks of a garden.
The wind blows after the rain, showing the kid a rainbow. The kid stares and smiles at the rainbow.
