“Places matter. Their rules, their scale, their design include or exclude civil society, pedestrianism, equality, diversity (economic and otherwise), understanding of where water comes from and garbage goes, consumption or conservation. They map our lives.” 
- Rebecca Solnit, Storming the Gates of Paradise, Landscapes for Politics

Our Home in Hubbards, Nova Scotia

"Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy.  Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.  It is not to bring men and women over to our side, but to offer freedom not disturbed by dividing lines."
- Henri J.M. Nouwen, Reaching Out: The Three Movements of the Spiritual Life
