“However cosmic the isolated house lighted by the star of its own lamp may become, it will always symbolize solitude…. We are hypnotized by solitude, hypnotized by the gaze of the solitary house; and the tie that binds us to it is so strong that we being to dream of nothing but a solitary house in the night.”

Gaston Bachelard, Poetics of Space

“Having a sister or a friend is like sitting at night in a lighted house. Those outside can watch you if they want, but you need not see them. You simply say, ‘Here are the perimeters of our attention. If you prowl around under the windows till the crickets go silent, we will pull the shades. If you wish us to suffer your envious curiosity, you must permit us not to notice it.’ Anyone with one solid human bond is that smug, and it is the smugness as much as the comfort and safety that lonely people covet and admire.”

Both the visual and imagined notion of so many tree branches touching is really something I can’t quite describe, save that I saw this and thought immediately “perhaps this is what people are really like, just unknowingly”. And then of course I thought of this verse:

we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles
