home where and what are you?
this is the house of my great-grandparents and the place where my grandmother was born.
My family moved already before I was born and for a while nobody lived there.
Later my parents spent some weekends with friends over there.
my parents in 1967
Then the house was sold, but from time to time we came back together with my grandparents.
I remember my grandmother standing in front of the house and telling stories from the past.
Although the place changed over the years, she still felt a deep connection,
not only to the house and ground, but I think to her family´s past -
that´s what she called HOME.
Feeling some kind of "unsettledness" inside myself, I lately think a lot about what HOME is.
I´d like to know where or what do you call HOME?
