Ulanov on “Housing”

To “house” means just that; it means not to suppress or repress or extinguish anything we are giving house room. It does not mean having one’s psyche all tidied up, marched to order, everything understood. Those neatenings and straightenings reflect only an obsessive hygiene, a self-defeating urge to surface perfections. Housing means space, awareness, making room in consciousness for all the unknown presences that exist in us, between us, among us.
