The empty face of shopping

Today I am driving north to The Metro Centre with my daughter. We need (if that’s actually true!) to visit IKEA and so will briefly visit said shopping centre. Now I know that shopping is a necessary task and that we all enjoy it to greater or lesser degrees…but I must say that these indoor shopping centres are soul less and depressing. Groups of people following each other around corridors of shop after shop, in artificial light with artificial air is no longer fun. Give me a fresh day, with gusts of wind to keep reminding me I am alive, and whatever light the day may give me. Going into a shop “for a warm ” is much more satisfying than simply going into a shop. So…I brace myself and hope that today’s shoppers are a lot more pleased to be alive than the usual troop.
