192.168.l.l Brainstorm Quarterly – Thoughts on Home

BQ 4 cover only small-01


The holidays in Kenya are littered with the word “nyumbani.” I’ve been wondering what this home means to us, and what other forms of home are open to imagination.

The best bit about running an online journal is that you get to pick the themes of the publication. Something as simple as thinking “I wonder what home means to us,” can flourish into a discussion and, eventually, an entire collection of essays about home, and the essence of home, within the country.

Home is complicated.

It is one of those things that runs deep with everyone – and it shows. The work in this book moves and breathes in different ways. In ways that can only be reached looking inward. In ways that ask to be listened to – and to be heard.

Home – where the heart is.

Listen, it beats.
