homesick for a home i've never had
after a few delays, sigur rós' heima dvd finally gets its u.s. release tomorrow. i've already professed my love for the beauty that is sigur rós, but today i feel a particular connection to the film whose title translates to "at home", because just as georg hólm puts it in the trailer, i've lately had a strange and uncontrollable urge to want to go home. lately this instinct has been consuming my brain as well as my heart--i really, really want to go home to seattle. the thing is, i've never lived in seattle. i've even only visited a few times. seattle is not and has never been my home. but there is something inside me that feels like it is where i want to be. i suppose it's a complex amalgamation of a lot of feelings that i have been feeling and a lot of events that have transpired recently. i'd be the first to admit that my fickle heart might be headed in completely the opposite direction a year from now, and i'm tied down where i'm at for at least a few more years anyway. but for now, i will dream of going home to a home i've never had.
