IS HOME REALLY WHERE THE HEART IS?



Do you sometimes gaze out of your bedroom window, at the world in front of you, and think to yourself, 'why the fuck do I live here?'

You probably would if you lived in Coventry.

Born and raised - that's me. I kind of hate that phrase because although, I was born and raised in Coventry, I wasn't exactly raised by Coventry. Yeah it will always be home and yeah it will always hold a significant place in my heart, be it an untidy and awkward place, but it will still always be my home. My friends and family are here, my childhood is here and I've shared so many memories and experiences with this city, yet I feel as if those moments could have happened anywhere.

It's difficult when you live somewhere that has lost it's identity and has been replaced by meaningless architecture and polluted souls. I want to want to wake up in the morning, get out of bed, look out of my window and be ready to seize the day. I want to feel inspired, motivated and creative but instead, the only thing I see is a blur of traffic and the same featureless buildings. I want to not know what the day holds for me, or perhaps know but look forward to it. I want to have a purpose, move forward and feel excited but I'm not. Before the day even begins you already feel suffocated and lost.

Now, I look out of my window and see the world beyond Coventry, I see the sunrise breaking through the clouds reminding me that there is more to this life and that although, Coventry is my home, I can check out at any time.


Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey - Tad Williams
