Juggler of two small children, defiant hound, pilot husband, crumbling cottage, small business and dreams of seeing The Book published. 'What Kate Did Next' is a daily blog for writers at http://katelordbrown.blogspot.com/
Gaston Bachelard was a scientist who became a Professor of philosophy at the Sorbonne. This is the single most challenging, evocative and poetic book about the places we exist in that I've ever read. Bachelard weaves literature, poetry and philosophy together with memories of treasured places - you'll never look at the world around you in the same way again.
