you must have a place


The mythologist Joseph Campbell was asked by an interviewer how a regular person could preserve his sense of the mythic when so many feel too besieged by the claims of every day living.
He said, "You must have a place to which you can go, in your heart, in your mind, or your house, almost every day, where you do not know what you owe anyone or what anyone owes you.
You must have a place you can go to where you do not know what your work is or who you work for, where you do not know who you are married to or who your children are."

–Joseph Campbell
