Antipodean Cross-hatching

In Sheridan Square yesterday watching a thirty-something woman in black with wild scarfs and flying hair troop past in tall leather boots and shouldering large bags filled with arts materials I thought this entirely parochial NYC specimen seemed entirely banal until I imagined her plunked down on a Houston street or Boise college campus and she transformed into a species of American exotica.  NYC + The rest of America = A fertile symbiosis.
