A displaced hedgehog is a figure - or rather an image - from Tove Jansson's Moomin books. This is how I can best describe myself. This blog is mostly about being displaced.

As I take a taxi from the train station in Cambridge to the friend with whom I am staying I feel that I've come home. I know what streets we are going on, I recongize the street crossings and the roundabouts. I am overjoyed by the sight of the parks. I am even looking forward to the meeting this afternoon.
