Intimate Immensity

“In point of fact, daydreaming, from the very first second, is an entirely constituted state. We do not see it start, and yet it always starts the same way, that is, it flees the object nearby and right away it is far off, elsewhere, in the space of elsewhere.”

— Gaston Bachelard,
Intimate Immensity,
in The Poetics of Space,
trans. Maria Jolas (Boston: Beacon, 1994), 183-84.
