Reverie.

Homer, The Trapper, 1870


In our childhood, reverie gave us freedom.  We still dream of liberty as we dreamed of it when we were children.  Those original solitudes leave indelible marks on certain souls.  Their entire life is sensitized for poetic reverie, for a reverie which knows the price of solitude.

Gaston Bachelard
