We are carrying other Stockports in our heads

We are carrying other Stockports in our heads. Each of us. You turn that corner and see your child running towards you. I walk the same street and see an old woman waiting for the traffic to ease. There are more than three dimensions in this layered up town. Every building, every kerbstone, every park fence, every tree, shape-shifts as we pass.

Inspired by a conversation with Ann Coffey, MP for Stockport

  1. Hello Sarah,
    When you wrote this, I was wondering, were you a little inspired by Yarn Storming that is currently in Heaton Moor Park, done by the Heatons WI?

    • Hi Maggie, I was actually inspired by another comment Ann made when we met, but she also mentioned the Yarn Storming, and showed me some pictures, so perhaps it did inspire me sub-consciously!
