Where’s Home? — 1 Comment

  1. “Home” is such a fraught emotion/concept. I have had to deal with “wandering Jew” inside myself, and many other images — both cultural imprints and personal history. I now try to “play” with that, so I quasi-choose Al-Andalus, Schubert, and other sustaining and generative images of my interior life.

    But we all need exterior life, a.k.a. community. I suspect that we both thought we might find a home in a particular community that you are now leaving. Maybe the image of “the Road” that has plagued and comforted everyone from folk singers to Tolkien is so powerful because — for some of us at least — leaving and arriving are always somewhere in view.

    (Sure puts “singlehood” in a different context!)
