It is something special to have one's own house, to lock the door to the world not of the room, not of the flat, but right of the house itself; to step out of the door of one's home straight into the snow of the quiet lane. (Franz Kafka writing about 22 Golden Lane, Prague Castle, a street that was once inhabited by alchemists.)
