In The Poetics of Space, Bachelard explores the house. He writes that homes or ‘the house’ allows one to dream in peace and “shelters and protects the dreamer”, whether it is a hut or mcmansion. That our house is our first universe. I love this. Often I think about how my aunt has stayed in her home in Wellawatte for 50 years, where she still finds her peace and comfort despite everything that has happened there.
