For migrants, a family letter may define an absence: of home, of family, of love. It is written to an absence. It may also serve as a way of transporting a migrant home, imaginarily. Each time a migrant writes a letter home, they are making a journey to their family: scenarios with family are developed in their imagination, and thus relationships are crafted, and home is constituted. The practice of letter-writing creates a space that is neither at home nor away sojourning, but somewhere in-between, a space for a migrant to be at home in the world.
