...and I thought I was the only one to tag my photos of graffiti as palimpsest, but I discover from DrJoolz's blog that there's a pool! Also, from the live manifestation of that esteemed blogger I catch up, if rather belatedly, with Dana's great blog, here (flaneuse is so good as a title, I'm instantly jealous!). And these occurances go someway towards illustrating for me the inter-relationship between identity performance and social networks - that is to say, we gain a sense of selfhood from locating ourselves in the ongoing narratives of others. Those ongoing narratives are no longer necessarily familial or localised, but more diverse and dispersed (that is to say, Dana's blog; the palimpsest pool and so on)...
