Way Back Home


One of the more contentious things in the life of an immigrant is the definition of "home". It's not just the immigrants themselves that need to figure out where their home is, torn between the new and the old; in the eyes of locals, they tend to be regarded as if they belong to the "other" place.
Well, in order to show you what my opinion on the this whole "home" thing is, I will quote for the second time from the book Constellation Games by Leonard Richardson:
Home is not the place you come from. That place is gone, if it ever existed at all. Home is the place you go to and like enough to stay, the place you ratify with your presence.
