A follow up to yesterday's post, seen at a street festival a few weeks ago. There is a meme in this country (and perhaps elsewhere) about women who get enormous pleasure from shopping, and therefore from consumption. It must briefly fill some hole in their spirits, a place so insecure that it must be filled by stuff. Of course, none of it provides lasting satisfaction. And, as John Lennon said, fun is the one thing that money can't buy.
