Quote 11: On Family and Home

An increasing amount of the world's population is in motion. People no longer live in ancestral homes or towns. Your place of birth might not be where you grow up or where you die. Home is mobile, the family splits, moves and returns. Home is not one space but multiple sites. Those of us who live here are in perpetual motion–negotiating through the familiar and the foreign, and renegotiating how we fit. The notion of home and self are tied up in this quest. Some of us will document this, to create our own memories, our own requerdos.
