Lovely article by Jeanette Winterson that I came upon in the Observer mag that was sitting on the coffee table at our friends’ house in Cork, Ireland. It’s very timely as Winterson conveys so much of what we’ve been thinking about for the past few months on our journey and we are taking the advice at the end of the article to heart!
One thought on “Once upon a life”
I enjoyed reading the article and I totally agreed with what she said. We do need the individual shops and the clone of everything. You lost your own identity. As I always complained about shopping in the Mall how everything is the same no matter where you are. I remembered how you can buy unique items from different places but not nowaday. Even the so call flea market in NYC sells the same merchandises from stall to stall. I guess you can buy unique items but you have to pay a lot for them.
