Prodical has blogged a few times on the need for space for communities and individuals to “breathe.” (Most recently Listen to the silent crowds)
As I spend a bit of time each week stuck in Auckland’s traffic jams I think that we will never solve them because they provide some of that space. One person – in a car – stuck in traffic – listening to what they want – no interuptions – no demands – a personal space enclosed in a metal and glass frame – my space – my time – a place for thinking.
Well mostly. 🙂
