Description: The mystery that attracts Howard Mansfield's attention is that some houses have life--are home, are dwellings, and others aren't. Dwelling, he says, is an old-fashioned word that we've misplaced.When we live heart and soul, we dwell. When we belong to a place, we dwell. Possession, they say, is nine-tenths of the law, but it is also what too many houses and towns lack. We are not possessed by our home places. This lost quality of dwelling--the soul of buildings--haunts most of our houses and our landscape.Dwelling in Possibility is a search for the ordinary qualities that make some houses a home, and some public places welcoming."Like Thoreau, Mr. Mansfield is a keen observer and, in his neck of New Hampshire, a granitic critic of the rushed life." -- The Wall Street Journal
