Human life is often compared to a journey, with childhood as the starting point of our exploration of the world. We try to learn, making the foreign familiar, but our life-long research often leads us to realise there are more questions than answers. So, where are we coming from and where are we going? Maybe first we can try to understand and learn about others, and subsequently learn about ourselves. Inevitably on our way we have to deal with trauma and conflict, which alienates some and unites others. We need a home, a place where we can come back to. And where is it? Is it a certain geographical place or is it inside us? Are these two connected? So, what’s next? And what will be in the end? Is death the end? Or is it just a way back home?
