The shrine for home 2020

ON THE DAY WHEN LOCK DOWN STARTED, I WAS ASKED BY PERSON WHOSE HOUSE I ‘M LODGING AT TO CHOOSE THE HOUSEHOLD WHERE I AM STAYING THROUGH THIS PERIOD AS IT WAS ADVISED BY GOVERNMENT. I PACKED A BAG OF CLOTHES AND ESSENTIALS NEXT MORNING AND LEFT TO STAY AT MY PARTNERS HOUSE FOR A PERIOD OF THE QUARANTINE. HOWEVER, LIVING OF THE BAG THAT I PACKED 9 WEEKS AGO MAKES ME THINK: WHAT IS HOME? IS IT SOMETHING WE INHERIT? IS IT A PLACE YOU’RE BORN AND RESIDE?  IS IT PEOPLE OR SOME SET OF TRADITIONS OR BELIEFS THAT LET US BECOME OUR TRUEST SELF? I ASKED SOME PEOPLE TWO QUESTIONS (THAT IN MY MIND WAS GOING TO REPRESENT WHAT HOME IS IN PHYSICAL FORM). INSTRUCTIONS WHERE SIMPLE: ‘’IF THERE WOULD BE A FIRE IN YOUR
HOUSE WHAT POSSESSIONS YOU WOULD SAVE (NOT CONSIDERING THINGS YOU CAN BUY AGAIN)’’ OR ‘’WHEN YOU MOVE FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE THERE’S ALWAYS A BOX OF THINGS THAT HAS TRAVELED WITH YOU , HAS SIGNIFICANT MEANING BUT PROBABLY NO PRACTICAL SIDE’’. TAKE THOSE ITEMS ARRANGE ON THE FLOOR IN YOUR HOUSE AND SEND PICTURE TO ME.

SO, WHAT IS HOME FOR YOU?
