    What other psychological freedom do we have than the freedom to dream?

    "The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us... Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows."

    ― Gaston Bachelard, La poétique de la rêverie

    “The French philosopher Gaston Bachelard once wrote an analysis of what he called the poetics of space.28 The inside of a house, he said, acquires a sense of intimacy, secrecy, security, real or imagined, because of the experiences that come to seem appropriate for it. The objective space of a house—its corners, corridors, cellar, rooms—is far less important than what poetically it is endowed with, which is usually a quality with an imaginative or figurative value we can name and feel: thus a house may be haunted, or homelike, or prisonlike, or magical. So space acquires emotional and even rational sense by a kind of poetic process, whereby the vacant or anyonymous reaches of distance are converted into meaning for us here. The same process occurs when we deal with time. Much of what we associate with or even know about such periods as ‘long ago’ or ‘the beginning’ or ‘at the end of time’ is poetic—made up. For a historian of Middle Kingdom Egypt, ‘long ago’ will have a very clear sort of meaning, but even this meaning does not totally dissipate the imaginative, quasi-fictional quality one senses lurking in a time very different and distant from our own. For there is no doubt that imaginative geography and history help the mind intensify its own sense of itself by dramatizing the distance and difference between what is close to it and what is far away.”

    Bachelard, « La poétique de l’espace » / La porte

    Bachelard, « La poétique de l’espace », p.200

    Une porte est une ouverture qui permet un passage. Ce passage se fait précisément sur le seuil de la porte. Il peut donc se trouver bloqué si la porte est fermée, ou ouvert dans le cas contraire. Selon le sens dans lequel on l’emprunte, la porte peut se faire issue, sortie, dégagement ou bien accès, passage, entrée. Dans les deux cas, elle marque un lieu dont la signification peut se diffracter par degrés infinis entre le tout ouvert et le tout fermé. L’entr’ouvert caractérise cette position intermédiaire, cet entre-deux, ce clair-obscur.  Que se passe-t-il dans cet entr’ouvert ? Qu’y voit-on ? Qu’est-ce qui nous échappe ?

    Bachelard nous invite à penser la porte comme modèle de nos rêveries. Celles-ci peuvent se trouver bloquées, incapables d’aller, de venir, de sortir des cadres dans lesquels elles sont prises. Notre imagination tourne en rond alors, et on rumine, dans l’enclos de notre esprit, portes fermées.

    Et puis, une lueur, un bruit, un sourire peut-être. L’ouverture se fait. La dynamique de la rêverie frémit à nouveau. La porte glisse et s’ouvre. Le printemps n’est-il pas ce moment de l’émergence et de l’éclosion ? Car une porte, même fermée, n’est pas un mur. Entrebâillée, elle est un espoir déjà presque réalisé. « Il suffira de pousser si doucement ! ». Laisser aller le dessin de sa rêverie alors. La regarder bondir de place en place, tissant à chaque fois, un réseau inattendu d’images qui, isolées, seraient chaotiques, mais qui, mises ensemble, forment une mosaïque, un paysage. Une poésie.

    Nos rêves s’organisent autour de portes multiples. Sachons les repérer, voyons les s’ouvrir. Osons passer le seuil. Car la porte invite plus qu’elle ne rejette.

    Caol Áit - A Thin Place

    Caol Áit – A Thin Place

    I’d not heard of thin places until just a couple of weeks ago, from Wheel of Seasons. It seems I’m one of the very few who are not familiar with the expression. And yet, it is such an apt description of what I’m trying to achieve in my work, it seems almost impossible that I’ve only just now come across it. A thin place is described as (for example): a place where one can walk in two worlds; a…

    Over and above the picturesque, the bonds between the world and the human soul are strong. Then there lives within us not a memory of history but a memory of the cosmos.

    The reality of love is mutilated when it is detached from all its unrealness.
