William Kittredge Quotes: Places Come To Exist In Our Imaginations

Places Come To Exist In Our Imaginations Because Of Stories, And So Do We. When We Reach For A "sense Of Place," We Posit An Intimate Relationship To A Set Of Stories Connected To A Particular Location, Such As Hong Kong Or The Grand Canyon Or The Bed Where We Were Born, Thinking Of Histories And The Evolution Of Personalities In A Local Context. Having "a Sense Of Self" Means Possessing A Set Of Stories About Who We Are And With Whom And Why.
