"The word "Umbilical" refers directly to the connection between mother and child. When we are born, we are physically connected to our mothers by the umbilical cord. Once it is cut, the psychological connection remains. This kind of connection, almost magnetic, is the one I want to refer to. Either mother and child, the connection to your motherland, to a friend, a partner, a memory. When you move away from your country, you cut your "umbilical cord" to all these things, but there is always this pulling back that keeps you connected to all of them.
