From Aram to Zoëpublished: 2011-01-20
At the organic store. Indeed, I am doing the right thing. At least I like to think it’s the right thing. I even use someone else’s recycled plastic bag.
After unloading the groceries at home, I notice a note at the bottom of it. A shopping list maybe? What could it tell me about the person who’s bag I’ve used?
Aram, Avalon, Elijah, Feline, Gerrit, Gilliam, Jalle, Jasmina, Indra, Linde, Lodewijk, Lotus, Mila, Saar, Trevor, Zilver, Zoë.
Just a bunch of names. For a dinner, maybe. A really big dinner. But please, take a moment. Study the names, their order, their feel. They really do tell me a few things. I won’t tell you what though. I don’t want to spoil your own freedom of association.
