What is home? A sanctuary, a place of rest, a feeling, a family, a specific house or town or state or sky. Home is the way you feel when you feel “at home”—relaxed, comfortable, open. It is in our homes where we are most physically vulnerable—taking showers, getting dressed, going to the bathroom, eating—and also where we are most emotionally vulnerable as well—where we yell and cry and hug, celebrate and grieve.
In many ways (and especially in a pandemic and post-pandemic world), home is where life happens.
