A woman explains how she feels for Canada and Greece.
RES.: You, considering all that you’re saying, how do you feel inside of you? Because you’ve lived fifty-one years here, twenty years in Greece and you’re telling me what Greece offered you and what Canada offered you. How do you feel? Do you feel Greek or Canadian?
Ε.M.: Greek first and then Canadian. I feel like both. Greek-Canadian I’d say.
RES.: It’s this torn heart.
Ε.M.: Yes. The heart in two. One love, how would I call it? I’d like to use a simile. Two loves in one heart. Two loves, grand loves in one heart. I can’t differentiate them. I go to Greece, I miss Canada. I come to Canada, I miss Greece. I have two cultures. I want the culture of Greece, I want the Canadian too, I want it as well. For example, I want to celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to celebrate on the 24th of June when Saint-Jean-Baptiste celebrates, I want to celebrate the 1st of July when Canada celebrates. I also celebrate without a doubt on the 25th of March in the parade. We’ve gone out even with 27 below in the parade. Aren’t we going to parade? That is… two loves in one heart. That’s what I’m telling you.
