ideas without place

The lost generation had Paris, and without Paris it is hard to imagine the literature and personalities of that period. Modern communities are often assigned, incorrectly, a sense of place simply because of their media presence. Humans will gather no matter how sophisticated computer technology becomes. The gym pictured above has moved 5 times in the past 20 years. Without a place it would not exist as a community. It has specific requirements that are difficult to achieve in a restrictive and overpriced real estate environment. It thrives in a marginal location.
