Civilization of Luggage


"We are reverting to a civilization of luggage, and historians of the future will note how the middle class accreted possessions without taking root in the earth, and may find in this secret of their imaginative poverty."
Howard's End, E.M. Forster (1910)

i just want to take a little space (a post is a too big space) to say that i feel a little sorry about all discussions we had on last posts... even if we have to save the constructive and positive part of all these words, i'm sure that the main thing to notice is the big amount of photo posted on this month (we're only in may 10th) and let them talk alone.
and as totti said in italian vodafone's commercial: "laffisnau" (nda life is now).

this image is did not translate well to the digital world. When I scanned it I lost some details that make it difficult to decifer what is being depicted. I took several exposures of houses as my wife and I drove by a little suberb. The houses all blend togther and the few trees in the town became ghosts.
