An Essential Discomfort in the World

“We moved house often, and each time it appeared that it was the perfecting of our environment that was causing us to leave it, as though living there had been a process of construction that was now complete. (…) To continue creating, a person perhaps has to maintain an essential discomfort in the world.”
Rachel Cusk, “Making House: Notes on Domesticity,” The New York Times Magazine 31 August 2016
