Spirit of Place…

From Stuart

France & Vincent


This notion, in the vague

form in which it as come down to us,

is probably more easily accessible,

or, as some might have it, ‘fluffier’.


Still, few would deny that

places can have atmospheres,

but what one actually puts that

atmosphere down to is these days

largely a matter for personal delectation,

and hence, hardly likely to cause too much in the way of disruption.


In the past much more store was set by such things,

and these vague notions assumed

a more ‘concrete’ form

and were correspondingly

given greater weight.


But to what end?
