Home Is a State of Mind (Visual Poetry)
Feeling at home is a tricky concept.
It is something that I have wondered about for as long as I can remember.
Somehow I always circle back to this very topic – and I’m sure many of you do, too.
Which is why I made this video.
A few weeks ago I was looking through some old texts on my computer and I came across this page I wrote 6 years ago, about how feeling at home is a state of mind rather than a certain place.
Considering that I have been living a bit here and there for the past months, finding it seemed like perfect timing.
So I decided to re-open and edit it, and to create some visuals that underline the statement that home is something you take with you wherever you go.
Rather than creating it externally, it is something you create and carry within yourself.
I hope you enjoy the ideas I put forward in this video and that my words resonate with you in one way or another.
Let me know if you’d like to see more of this in the future and remember to SUBSCRIBE to my youtube channel and keep reading here for words and visuals with an international twist.
