“The people that live in these houses often say ‘Oh, I love this cute house, it has so much personality!’ I wonder if these houses actually do have personalities, do they miss their friends after they’ve been torn down to be replaced with something new? Can you imagine watching your friends grow old and neglected? Would you miss the trees that used to line your front lawn? Do you think you’d get along with the new in-fill mansions? Would you resist the change or hope to be part of it?”
