With the passing of each day the foreign becomes the familiar and a sense of home arises.


‘Distant places give us refuge in territories where our own histories aren’t so deeply entrenched and we can imagine other stories, other selves, or just drink up quiet and respite.’ – Rebecca Solnit.


This quote like so much of Solnit’s work grasps at all the emotions we find in this world where you can go anywhere and see anything at any time, it’s something that our souls are yearning for. To find answers to questions we don’t even know how to ask.
