conversation

paint me a picture of what home means to you.

home? do you want the philosophical definition, or just the existential one?

just tell me what the word means to you.

well, i guess it means somewhere i feel comfortable.

that’s cheating.

why?

i’ve seen you in many places and situations. and you seemed comfortable in most of them.

perhaps.

besides, you can’t use comfort. it’s an emotional variable that will probably differ among people.

okay, okay. how about a place i feel i belong?

where’s that?

somewhere i can read the writing on billboards, somewhere i understand the language the people around me are speaking…

you can’t use language.

why not?

you know more than one language. and therefore, there’s a billion places on earth that fit your definition.

well then, how about somewhere i know well?

oh, please. try to be a bit less general, would you?

you know, this is a difficult question.

i’m a difficult person. try again.

can i use happiness?

sure.

i guess then, my definition of home would be where i’m the happiest i could ever be.

so where’s that?

well…

…it’s with you.

  3. See if this is helpful:
    “You’ll see when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it’s just gone. And you can never get it back. It’s like you get homesick for a place that doesn’t exist. I mean it’s like this right of passage, you know. You won’t have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for you kids, for the family you start, it’s like a cycle or something. I miss the idea of it. Maybe that’s all family really is. A group of people who miss the same imaginary place.” -Andrew (Garden State)

    me misses you.

  4. that’s veryy cute but I wonder where did it come from?
