Since 2008, Coucou Home has been a touchstone in my life. After a decade of sharing stories about my home and others, I’m no closer to understanding what homes means — but what I have learned is that it is always changing.
My idea of home has certainly changed. Last year, I married the first boy I kissed, and what I’ve realized is that in the words of John O’Donohue, “We bring home to each other.”
We are in the process of making big plans for 2019 and along with everything else going on in Vietnam — volunteering, teaching, studying, art-making — I can’t properly nuture Coucou Home. And so I’m trusting that space and stillness will allow it to grow at a later date.
Thank you for supporting my work all these years. Connecting with people who share my enthusiasm for understanding place opened my eyes to new landscapes, inner ones especially.
I’ve always believed we are here in this world to connect, so thank you, too, for connecting with me.
