John Berger, “Ten Dispatches on Place”

Allison sent this link to John Berger’s essay (in the classical sense of the term, not the academic sense), “Ten Dispatches on Place.” You can find it in print in the collection Hold Everything Dear. Allison says, “it has been very helpful for me in terms of thinking about my connection to place and consequently the disconnect that I often feel.”
