CFE: Going | Home | Coming

Call for Entries:
Going | Home | Coming
August 13 - September 11, 2011

“Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.”
Charles Dickens

“One never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.”
Hermann Hesse

Home is something many of us take for granted, until we are called to consider it from a new perspective. Leaving or returning home can offer such an opportunity for reflection.
  • When do you become aware of home?
  • How many homes do you have?
  • In what situations do you NOT feel at home?
  • What things evoke a sense of home?
  • How does the idea of home change over time?
