What is “home”? Is it a structure, place, environment, people, neighborhood or community? Thinking beyond the literal, how do you interpret this very familiar subject matter? Is it a specific place, or do you take it everywhere you go? Is it a status symbol or a safe haven? Is it temporary or permanent?
Is it yours or someone else´s; for sale or foreclosed?
Is it a personal issue or a larger, global issue?
