I love rooms. I study rooms. I walk around in rooms - any room I inhabit for any amount of time will be walked in and around by me. I am not confined by my room but if I am I hope I will have the presence of mind to be as content to be in it as Xavier De Maistre was when he was confined to his room for six weeks during the French Revolution - when they were beheading people like him and it was a good deal to be away from Paris and in a room of your own.
"My room is situated under the forty-fifth degree of latitude, according to the measures of Father Beccaria; its direction is from the east to the west; it forms a long square, which has thirty-six paces of turn, by shaving the wall very near. My journey, however, will contain more; for I shall often traverse it diagonally, diagonally, without following any rule or method. "I will even make zig zags, and I will go through all the possible lines in geometry if the need so requires."
"My soul is so open to all sorts of ideas, tastes, and feelings; she receives so eagerly all that presents itself. "
"When I travel to my room, I rarely travel a straight line: I go from my table to a table which is placed in a corner; thence I go obliquely to go to the door; but, although it is my intention to go there, if I meet my chair on the way, I do not do it in a way, and I arrange it right away." Xavier de Maistre 1763 - 1852
