For me, a home is a space full of life and presence. 
A space, made into a place. After 40 years of being 
a home to my grandparents, their house is now for sale. 
It's an empty space again.

Since they both went to a nursing home,
there are only memories left. In this intermediate stage, 
the atmosphere is still palpable, but the space is blank.  
The house is waiting until it can form a new home for 
new people and there can be built a new place to 
create new memories.
