Lately I seem to struggle with words,
and giving this creation a title was difficult.
And I almost didn't title it.
But it is heading to an exhibition,
and therefore it was said a title was needed.
So I sat quietly with my creation.
It's story buried within.
I knew it was about being rooted
I knew it was about the depth and strength of self
But then I learned that self was also home -
my body being home for the me within.
The story continued and told the tale of taking opportunities that are all around us.
Of reaching to places that are not so comfortable - be they near or far,
while still staying true to self,
or as the title says - 'Close to Home'.
