There is a certain sacredness we reserve for the word “home,” which implies it is more than just a structure, and is somehow more than a house, even though the elements of a house—its site, objects, and occupants—are arguably requirements for creating a home. As I attempted to write a meaningful definition for home, I developed a group of words related to the home and body that can be interchanged formulaically to create a series of phrases that seem to approach a definition, but often devolve into near-nonsense. Written on mugs as useless as my attempt to define home, this collection of 100+ unique phrases represents the elusiveness of my quest.
