Sheltering daydreams March 30 2015
The house shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer,
the house allows one to dream in peace. - Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
By the time I was old enough to form a home that was my own, my ability to disassemble and create space was impeccable. I could confine all of my valuable belongings to the inside of my car, or suitcase, meaning that I was always prepared to escape. This restlessness made it impossible for me to remain in one place for very long. At times it made me feel unsatisfied. And yet it also inspired some of my greatest adventures. I owe all of my life's achievements to this blessed unrest, because without it, my hunger for travel and new experience would not exist.
