The Slippery Performance of Domesticity
Our roots are within ourselves. We must ask ourselves whether we are the branches of other boughs and roots, or whether we are their seeds, granted with the potency to make our own roots.
Roots run deep, some roots find detours into fungi. It shouldn’t be precluded that perhaps, we are the fungi of larger plants, maybe even larger ecosystems. Although with all parasitic relationships, we should also be aware of how the interplay between host and parasites are symbiotic, impossible to entangle. That is to suggest, homes too can be the parasites - that we love them even if they may eventually drain us fully.
