Recently, I reread The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, a book that applies the philosophy of phenomenology to spaces and things. Flowery prose, whimsical and speculative, the author plays with how memories are shaped within the home. A mediation of poetry, it forces reflection and realization about innate experiences. The reread conjured a poetic experience with my mom’s rose teapot and orange cake.
