Home from Home

How far away is home

Home is here which is everywhere for someone

Do we leave home or take it with us

Why do we need to contact home when we leave

Or do we just need to contact those we remember when we leave home

Is home then scattered with all those we remember and hold dear to us

Why is a holiday called a holiday

Why do we not just say we have left home

When we leave home does home no longer remain home without us

Who is at home if we are not there

Is home wherever I am

Do I have to have my possessions to make a place home

Can I make home wherever I go

Can home be a strange unfamiliar place

Or do we have to know our surroundings intimately for it to be home

Is home in our heads and minds

Or is home only a physical entity containing us

Is home a collection of everything both physical and metaphysical

    Q: “Who is at home if we are not there?”

    [suggested] A: We are. Still.

    cf. Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (applied to people rather than quantum particles!)

  • -Do we leave home or take it with us
    -Is home wherever I am
    -Can I make home wherever I go

    (suggested)
    -Every time we leave, we take home with us
    -We are our own home, considered as a complex of common intentions and feeling of belonging
    -Home is not a just a place but first an ideal-idea of what we are and from where we come
    -As something which is always different, home moves with us every time we do
    -Home is and might be wherever I go

    Do I have to have my possessions to make a place home? As aides-memoires. Where I was. Who I knew. Why I left. How I arrived. What I lost. What I’ve gained. Who I am. What I need. What I’ll leave behind. How I feel loss. What loss is. How I live within the world. How I live away from the world.
