Dreaming of making a clean breast of it
7 January 10
It’s easy to take our modern Western society so seriously that we lose perspective and place our current cultural norms above those of other people. Although I grew up as an Australian in West Africa, at the time I still held onto my own foolish ideas of what was proper and correct. Now that I’ve seen a bit more of the world, I try to assess cultural differences in their proper context without judging them.
And there are distinct advantages to other cultures. Dress can be one of them. With my breastfeeding resulting in a sensitivity in very delicate areas, I start to look upon other forms of dress as more desirable. And with modesty a matter of culture, if I could transplant myself into another time and place, these are my current top picks.
So now you know.
I’m going to temporarily revoke our open-door policy. Please ring the doorbell before you walk into my house — it’ll give me a opportunity to cover up.
