Etxe : Home with Emily

etxe : home

Each Tuesday we'll be posting a new perspective on ETXE : HOME. This piece is by writer and friend Emily Zietlow, who's started writing this awesome column Eternal Characters of the Film Lover's Mind, which you should all read.

How do you define home?

Home is people. Home is a laugh or phrase or story you've heard a thousand times and rolled your eyes to, but when you need it, it's a lifeline to who you are.

What in your closet makes you feel most at home?


What is your favorite memory of home?

It's not specific, but it's the moment lying in bed in the early morning on Christmas morning, or before a trip to the mountains, when my parents would be getting ready and debating when to wake me up. Hearing their voices through the door, while I lay warm in bed was comfort and promise all wrapped up in one.
