Here in Italy on holiday the room I have stayed in many times cannot be home as it is not ‘realistically mine’. As I do not own it. My husband pays to ‘rent’ the room out of his salary so I do not own the space i exist in whilst I’m here.
In England is my home really MY home as I have never paid for it; I do not own the space. I am allowed to be there at the ‘say-so’ or permission of another.
If we accept home as a right of ownership then I do not have a home as the spaces I exist in are borrowed from another.

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
