Things Gone and Things Still Here

Does anyone remember this post?

Not too long ago I made a post about what is lost when living in boom times.

I wonder if in the current economy, people will once again learn the art of reusing a tea bag. Or at least, something like a high-quality, "good" leather handbag (to use just one example from my own life) once again becomes something to aspire to when you're growing up, instead of an everyday throw-it-out-next-season item. I am hopeful that in the end, we might have a more stable society, but unfortunately I think we just always refuse to learn, and boom-bust-boom-bust is just the way it goes.
