Lost Childhood


"And after we are in the new house, when memory of other places we have lived in come back to us, we travel to the land of Motionless Childhood..." - John R. Stilgoe

Having the chance to move around as I grew up made me question where is Home. A common view in this is human attachment to geographic space, which in my case, Indonesia. I am recalling all these layers of memories when I was growing up with toys and childhood friends, realizing how I can only recall some fragments of this bitter comfort-relationship of lost childhood with the memory of it as remembrance.
