I am joining Frizz’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge today. Letter tagged this week is E, and I share this photo I took when I walked along downtown Wooster with my boyfriend and his parents. The structure in the background is the county courthouse. It was a beautiful day out, I must add.
“We depend on our surroundings obliquely to embody the moods and ideas we respect and then to remind us of them. We look to our buildings to hold us, like a kind of psychological mould, to a helpful vision of ourselves. We arrange around us material forms which communicate to us what we need — but are at constant risk of forgetting what we need — within. We turn to wallpaper, benches, paintings and streets to staunch the disappearance of our true selves.”
