It is hard to say where one is in the world. Some argue we come into being through our engagements with other people, things, environments, thoughts, and artefacts. Alphonse Lingis tells us we find out who we are by travelling and we connect to others through our smiles and laughter. Certainly sharing a meal can achieve this connection as well and, like the madeline of Proust, our memories of past connections and our hopes for those of the future are stirred by our engagements with the material world. We are located, placed, homed. This blog offers reflections on the myriad dimensions of the processes of connection and location and their sister process of distanciation; hopefully capturing the abstract as well as the ordinary and always looking for the social justice within.
