"This house is alive, bursting with enthusiasm, with joyous life. This is the main fundament of the psyche of Wild Woman, a joyous life force, where houses dance, where inanimates like mortars fly like birds, where the old woman can make magic, where nothing is what it seems, but for the most part is better than it seemed to begin with."

--Clarissa Pinkola Estes,
Women Who Run with the Wolves
