Maggie Taylor's Almost Alice

Maggie Taylor’s Almost Alice

“To understand our attachment to the world, it is necessary to add a childhood, our childhood, to each archetype.  We cannot love water, fire, the tree without putting a love into them, a friendship which goes back to our childhood.  We love them with childhood…we love them in a new found childhood, in a childhood reanimated with that childhood that is latent in each of us.”

                  — Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Reverie
