Of late and especially this week, I have been mulling on how one’s immediate physical surroundings—and what is required in order to do basic things like stay warm, stay fed, stay washed and clothed and capable, stay safe and alert and carrying on—affect a person’s perceptions of everything. Family. Friends. Acquaintances. Foes. Love. Loss. Estrangement. Work. Breathing. Possibilities. What is or what could or might be in our PastPresentFuture. Is it the immediacy or the physicality of place that pervades us thus?
