here we spend an incredible amount of time contemplating America. or the aspects that most interest us, at least. in parks and bars as years go by since we left... America is always bubbling and reintroducing itself to new and renewed parts of our mind with new and renewed interests... or can it simply not tolerate being unthought of?
we roll on and roll up our sleeves as if we are whitecoated scientists in a lab full of little aspects of it all sectioned off and petri-dished out, stacked up and waiting for comment and observation as they each either grow freakishly, wait patiently for the right conditions or or or simply do nothing at all.
meanwhile, now that the coast is clear the brits are showing up... feigning bohemianism or buying property.
