WHAT DOES “HOME” MEAN TO YOU?
The looks that simply asks… “Will we ever see each other again?”
“We had this claw foot tub and I used to looove pretending that claw foot tub became an actual lion that came to life while I was in my bath, and I’m this fairy riding this claw foot lion. The bubbles were his hair, you know. But when my mother was being abused and my father would come and beat her, she would make me run to bathroom and hide me underneath the tub because I was so skinny and little. They would hide me underneath that tub. So it was like my sanctuary space. So I went back, the claw tub was gone, they put a regular shower bathroom and I was like ‘It’s goone?! Where would they run to if dad came home?’ and I had to remind myself this isn’t my house anymore, it’s somebody else’s house. So that’s the thing when you go back. You go back with this expectation that when you walk in there you can see and relive these moments… and you go back and see all that’s changed and you’re like, ‘they ruined my memory here.'”
