For most of us, home is as much a state of mind as a physical place. Poignant lyrics for the title song from the music-documentary, "Home Again," co-written by Laguna Beach residents Scott Hays and Jason Feddy, help drive the point home.
You know it's hard to feel secure when you've got no place to go
Lost and lonely, walk in circles in the night
Another day, another dawn, it all seems to fall apart
When there's no one there to help you get it right.
Hays, founder and owner of WeedPatch Productions, conceived and created the music-documentary with friend and executive producer Roger Harvey, a Project Playhouse volunteer builder and advocate for homelessness awareness.
Released in September to support the home-builders industry's outreach program, HomeAid OC, "Home Again" is second in a series of cause-driven projects by the group to fuel the fight against homelessness. Through music, images, and interviews with emergency shelter residents, "Home Again" seeks to bring a personal face to homelessness and dispel the myth of homelessness as a "lifestyle decision."
