Here is the link to a book review of An Adventure in Indianapolis. http://angiesdiary.com/?p=21344&preview=true
Many of you have had shopping mall experiences and found that at least once, you felt overwhelmed by the abundance of bright colored lights and noise and shiny rotating trinkets for sale in shop windows.
Some of you have paid significant sums of money to spend a week somewhere there isn’t an overwhelming abundance of shopping malls.
There are people who feel ‘in touch with nature’ and people who get uncomfortable about too much ‘naturalness’ because it so closely resembles either baby feces stuff or barbarians or what soldiers are like after having been heavily used in actual war. All I am really getting at is that I noticed that back in March was still before the farmers started tilling. Well, that has really changed. The clocks have been moved ahead. There is tons more daylight now: it seems like it happened quickly and now dawn arrives at 5am and sunset is out to 9pm shaking off the withdraw-shock of how it feels when it is dark from 3pm to 9am the next day or something hideous and excessive like that. The country is ‘snapping out of it’ again, and the farmers are actually tilling the local fields …Actually, last week they did a lot of it.
