The Shins - New Slang(Garden State) [youtube.com] If you haven't seen Garden state, it's a great movie about going home.
Well I did go back home today. I have not read the book that the title was taken from, but I can image that it was meant in the sense that your home is never the same as it was when you were a kid. Everything changes. This is something I know but sometimes have a hard time with. I like my scenery to change, just not so much the people. But maybe home isn't the house where you live now or the home in which you grew up. Maybe home is symbol for the people that you feel the most yourself around and safe and loved. This could be biological family or people you've sought out in your life. After all, your physical home is just hard wiring and knick nacks (some of which remind us of things, others that just look pretty).
