Heimat conjures up a sense of belonging – often formless and incoherent. Examining Heimat has raised questions not only of identity but of consciousness. While living in England, France and Belgium, Donegal was the place which fed my fantasies and dreams. Now when I weed the mighty garden of realisation of those dreams, it is the place which feeds my sub-conscious. There is resistance to bringing those formless emotions of attachment to this hillside and this view of the sea to the surface. My social media monologue is resistance to that resistance.
