flashback 2

Like the stuff in itself was not so great a loss except as it represented in its order that thing that we call home...I thought of living in Spokane with Luke and how I was always amazed, when I got home, that it was still there, literally–ha more so a metaphor for the relationship–but now the loss of house and home was a thing quite real. And it, a home, is one of those things that somehow secures us, fastens us. And it is a thing not to be snatched as if it were a damned hat.
