The title is a Tolkien reference, and refers my long wanderings/quest, before recently returning to my home town.

The rainbow infinity loop represents a journey, as well as neuro diversity and the rainbow badge represents gender and sexual diversity. These are included to connect the outer journey to the search to safety and belonging. I sewed it on Mum’s old table cloth, using a bit of Nanna’s wedding dress, and buttons and threads from my great aunt. Along with the mug of tea, these represent home.
