Home Is...

This was written co-operatively by myself and my wife, Toni, as part of a program entitled "Always Coming Home," after Ursula LeGuin's novel of the same name. The form is of a spoken duette, a dialog: the parts are marked. It was presented to the UUFC on December 6, 1992, as part of a joint program, marking our final departure from the Clemson community. However, a small part of each of us remains there. As Toni said in parting, "If it were only possible to be in Pennsylvania during the week and in Clemson on Sunday morning." I hope that the allusions and borrowings are obvious.



* Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam.



* The land of the free, home of the brave.
* East is east, west is west, but home is best.



*And all roads lead to home.
* What is more agreeable than home?



* Home is where you hang your hat.
* Home is where the heart is.



* But absence makes the heart grow fonder.

* Home is the sailor, home from the sea, and the hunter home from the hill.



* Keep the home fires burning.
* Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home.



* For your house is on fire and your children may burn.

* Homeroom.



* Hometown.

* Home team.



* Home game.
* Home and away



* Run along home.
* Ally, ally, all-y home free!
