notes/quotes:

This pandemic has shown us we can call only one place home

How can mourning be a private affair when grief does not know how to stay inside?

To grieve is not simply sentimental; grief gives impetus to organizing, and this is how we live.

yeah .. that..

let’s try a nother way.. for all of us.. to get back home.. to get back to our roots (image is what grabbed me).. oikos ness..

oikos (the economy our souls crave).. ‘i should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.’ – gaston bachelard, the poetics of space
