“…Build of your imaginings a dwelling in the wilderness before you build a house within city walls. For even as you have home-comings in your twilight, so has the wanderer in you, the ever distant and alone. Your house is your larger body. It grows in the sun and sleeps in the stillness of the night; and it is not dreamless. Does not your house dream? And dreaming, leave the city for the grove or hill-top? I wish that I could gather your houses in my hand and like a sower, scatter them in forest and meadow…”
