place linkage

boynton suspects that a cold may be lurking somewhere waiting to catch her yet hatless in the bitterness of winter solstice. This is by way of an excuse for not finding some greater counter link to the reading list of links presented below. We've been having an almost phantom flu day - hybernating and conserving the hypertextual energy. However all these links deal with Place and there's some wonderful reading within and round the edges

Place is not only a noun but a verb; one cannot come to know it without locating oneself in it, a slow and interior process...
From Wesley McNair The Forest And The Trees: Four Seasons From a Journal About Place and Poetry (via wood s lot)

Here is Northern Ohio

Architecture as Identification of Space via this post at Black Belt Jones

And a large collection of wonderful essays on writing and thinking about Place at the newly formed Ecotone (via Fragments)

Thanks for the link! From this trip I learned that Northern Ohio, like Texas, really is a whole different country.

It's a great post, Anne. About past inhabitants of the landscape, and the inheritors.
Your description of the long stretches of silent, flat country bewteen small towns reminded me of our landscape/ roadscape.
