Passing by the fountain

"How do you mean, you spirits of place have to be on the move?"

"If you watch folk going by this mall fountain, and listen to their wishes, you learn that their lives don't circle around any single central place. Their homes, maybe, but they change houses pretty often, certainly more than our clients back in Japan, and their homes really exist as several connected areas: the house, day care place, that gym there, and so on. People here set up networks and connections and treat them as extended places. As that becomes more frequent in Japan we're going to have get on the move ourselves if we expect to keep up."
