18168Re: [CF] Carfree for three years.
- Sep 3, 2007I was thinking what you wrote about beauty. My daughtetr is in hospital so I've had to go into the town centre every day (by bus). Not having been into the polluted heart of Bristol for a while I noticed how dirty it was. And most of dirt was up buildings from car exhausts. Even the new shopping centre being built (in cream, duh) was already filthy.

Did anyone here hear about the Chaps (as in, from the Chap Olympics, I

chanting "Truth is Beauty! Beauty is Truth!" as a protest against Modern
Art? Well, I am coming to think that what I like most about the carfree
movement is the fact that it is all about (or, lots about, anyway)
re-introducing beauty into the everyday. Roads are ugly; parks are nice.
Do away with cars, and everyone can be a short walk from where they're
going at all times; I'd far rather stroll through greenery and growing
food to get to work, than sit on the freeway trying like buggery to lose
myself in a novel!
