A woman in her 30’s. She stands in the void, calling for, yearning for, looking for.
She digs deep inside herself, she wants to come out.
The baby wants to come out.
Madness is in the house.
Stillness and loudness are needed to untangle the impossible.
Home time has arrived but the roof is still missing.
I dive to believe. I am home.
